Where the court has the requisite jurisdiction and upon proper pleadings and proper
and due notice to all interested parties the judgment in a divorce action may contain
such provisions respecting care, custody, tuition and maintenance of the minor children
of the marriage as the court may adjudge; and from time to time such provisions may
be modified upon due notice and hearing and a showing of a substantial change in condition;
and if there be no minor children, the judgment may so state. The jurisdictional requirements of G.S. 50A-201, 50A-203, or 50A-204 shall apply in regard to a custody decree.
