The first thing you should do is to let your wife’s attorney know that you are looking for an attorney, and that you will need more time to respond.
Then, you will need an attorney in North Carolina to handle your case, since your wife and kids are here. You probably won’t have to travel to NC too often if you can find an attorney that will work with you over the phone and by email. You should contact the firm in Charlotte! Hopefully, they will be able to work with on on this case.
