Can a child support order from another state be modified in North Carolina?

Sometimes, but only under certain conditions, which are found in section 52C-6-611 of the law on our NC Statutes page.  The legal requirements are complex, however, and you may want to talk to an attorney who can advise you as to whether or not you can modify the order based on the facts of your case.
