I have been making regular and timely child support payments, pursuant to the North Carolina guidelines.
My separated spouse has announced that she is going to NC CSE to obtain back support on my remote visitation expenses, that were previously applied to child support as extraordinary expenses. There is no court order. All child support has been paid pursuant to voluntary agreement, including six months of acceptance of payments, subject to these extraordinary expenses.
I have three questions:
Should I expect correspondence from CSE or an immediate service of process and litigation;
In the event of litigation, will the venue be in Wake county, where the marriage was spent and where I am domiciled, or in Mecklenburg county, where my separated spouse currently resides; and
What legal resources are available in North Carolina? I would expect to find annotated cases and statutes, West and Matthew Bender digests, and Shepard’s citations. Are there family law treatises available, such as Witkin’s California Family Law or publications by a local continuing education of the bar?
