What are the residency requirements for divorce in NC?

My wife and I married in Turkey and I am relocating to the U.S. for work. We are in the process of separating and she will remain here in Turkey. I will be moving to Raleigh, North Carolina. What are the residency requirements for obtaining a divorce there? How long do I have to live there before I can pursue the divorce? I would also like to know whether my wife will need to travel to the U.S. at any point for a divorce proceeding. She says she will not participate as she is opposed to the divorce and I am concerned that I will not be able to finalize the matter if she refuses to cooperate.

How do I enforce a prenup if my spouse contests it?

I am divorcing my wife and she is threatening to contest our prenuptial agreement. We wrote the agreement ourselves before we married and she knew exactly what she would get and what she would be giving up if we did divorce. Now she is claiming she didn’t understand her rights and didn’t know she could contact a lawyer to review it before signing it. I believe the agreement is fair and neither of us had an attorney so there was no advantage that either of us had over the other. What do I need to show the court to have this prenup enforced in the divorce? I stand to lose a lot of money and property if this agreement is thrown out. Does it matter that she didn’t consult an attorney?
