Dear JACUSTOMER - Well she can't just move and file for divorce since she is not a resident of NC and would have to wait to establish residency. so she should file for divorce in Florida if she does not want to wait. Until she files she will be in limbo since there is no other way to get a court order for support or custody or anything else.
There are certainly free legal services available through places like legal aid and the Bar Association. I have included the website for the Bar below so you or your daughter may be able to find some help. If she to moves to NC she will have to wait until she establishes residency in order to even file for the divorce. In Florida she can file now.
