Does a registered foreign custody judgment turn into a judgment of the state of NC? And if so, does modifying it there after only require a “motion in the cause” with service by regular first class mail, or do a summons and petition need to be issued? And is there ever a time when subsequent modifications of custody orders require Rule 4 service?
Last question, is Rule 62(a) applicable to automatically suspending the enforcment of a change in custody, and if so and a notice of appeal is timely filed, does it also suspend enforcment of the custody change pending appeal automatically?
Thank You for your time in answering these questions.
