Where does the court proceeding for support take place?

Generally, the court hearing for child support takes place in the county where the child lives or is physically present or in a county where one of the parents live.1  There are some exceptions, so you may want to consult an attorney for more information about your case.  You can find legal referrals on our NC Finding a Lawyer page.
