  1. Your question isn't clear. It is always a good idea for anyone going to court to at least have a consultation with a local attorney to review all the details of the pending matter so informed decisions can be made going forward regarding the case. So I suggest that as your first course of action. You can find attorney contact info below or by searching among the profiles here on AVVO. Good luck!

  2. The answer will depend on the jurisdictional requirements of NC and FL courts, neither of which am I familiar with. It may likely turn on how long the two of you have resided in NC. If you don't have an attorney representing you, you should find one to do so ASAP.
