Greetings. Let’s see what I can do to answer these:
It may or may not affect your child support. It depends on if she plans and does return to work and if so, for what salary.
You can file an action for custody and ask the court to have your child returned to NC.

Yes, but you are also entitled to half of the funds she obtained.
You must always follow the service laws of North Carolina if you are filing litigation here. You serve someone in another state in the same manner as you serve in North Carolina.

Yes, valid separation agreements last past the date of the divorce. Thank you.
