Yes. A termination of parental rights may be based on abandonment. North Carolina Statutes § 7B-1111 provide the grounds for termination which include:

Abandonment or Extreme Parental Disinterest


Mental Illness or Deficiency

Alcohol or Drug Induced Incapacity

Failure of Reasonable Efforts

Abuse/Neglect or Loss of Rights of Another Child

Failure to Provide Support

Failure to Establish Paternity

Child Judged in Need of Services/Dependent

Child's Best Interest

Child in care 15 of 22 months (or less)

Felony assault of child or sibling

Murder/Manslaughter of sibling child

but i live in florida and work 7 days a week so contact is extremely hard

The reasons are not so important. The effort and the contact is. If your absence is protracted, you risk losing parental rights. Being a parent is viewed as a priority. Ultimately the decision is made based on what a court determines is best for the child.

Ongoing child support is terminated. Any unpaid arrears are still owed.
