Support Calculation - NC vs SC


Dear snwlpd:

Greetings. You must wait to live in one state for six months prior to being a resident. Nevertheless, figure out which state helps you and try to negotiate a settlement using that state’s laws. Best of luck.

Child support calcuations vary between NC and SC. Which state do we file for divorce in? I live in SC and my ex-to-be lives in NC. We were together in NC for 5 years. When became seperated in SC after living there together for less than 3 months.
