Greetings. You may file for alimony and child support in the county you or your spouse live in. Child support is set in accordance with the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines, and that is generally not up for dispute.
Also, not every case in front of a judge has to be the norm and most cases settle before they ever see the inside of a courtroom. Trust that the situation will be negotiated out to your benefit and hire the best attorney to do this. Best of luck.
