i have a similar situation, and depending on age i beleive you have to live in NC for six months before they will take jurisdiction over your case. i could be wrong, im kinda new at this too, so if i am wrong please someone post the right info.
Let me add a little info… Custody began in FL, Ex moved to NC, I moved to NC to be near and he has taken off to Michigan for a job. All legal proceedings are in FL at the present time and I need to amend the agreement now that he is working full time and seems to keep wanting to get further away.
How long do I need to live in NC before the courts will take jurisdiction over my daughter? Her father lives out of state. I don’t want to travel back to FL for court if I don’t have to. So would rather let NC take over the custody case.
