I was divorced in 2003 in the state of FL and then went through NC to get primary custody and parental rights. There is currently a Consent Order through NC which relieves my ex-wife of having to pay child support. I've come to a point where I am in need of financial support for our son and she is refusing to help in ANY fashion. She has never paid for anything for him on a consistent basis. She is now moving, again, to Boise, ID and my son and I live back down in FL.
You need to pursue a modification of any custody/support orders. It sounds like the current order is in North Carolina so your starting point is that order. However it sounds like none of the parties reside in North Carolina any longer, which would suggest you're likely looking at pursuing a modification in Florida (where the child has been living and under your custody). You should consult with a local Florida family law attorney to discuss modification and the proper course for pursuing. More information will be needed on your previous dealings and order in North Carolina to know how it impacts your options.
You should definitely talk to a Florida attorney about your situation. Your options probably depend on how Florida treats the NC Consent Order; Florida most likely has to recognize the North Carolina order, but if your family situation has changed, you may have grounds to modify the order in Florida.
