Can a mother stop a child from living with the child support paying father?

The child must live with the parent who has physical custody per the court order. A "child support paying father" cannot just take custody of the child. Read your court orders.If there is joint custody, there will be some kind of schedule... and no, you can't "stop a child from living with" the father if that's what the order says, even if he is notpaying child support (the fact that he isn't adhering to the order does not free you to break it also). You would need to go back to court and seek to have the order modified.

Why not? It's still your child. Who has the child the father with mental problems or the custodial parent?

Unless you are paying arrearages you can go to court and ask that the custody order be modified to reflect the current custody arrangement and also that the child support order be terminated.

What will happen if the father of my child pays child support but i move in with another male?

Your child support is not dependent on whether or not you live with someone else. The support is for the child and the child's expenses. The only way your child support should stop is when the child turns 18 and all c.s. payments have been fulfilled (including back pay), when the back pay is paid in full (regardless of the childs age), when custody is changed (i.e. CPS/DSFS removal, juvenile detention, you go to prison/jail, guardianship of the child is awarded to someone else, the father wins custody of the children, etc.)


The father has sole custody but wants to give custody back to the mother of a very unruly child who wants to live with his mother anyway How can he do this without her come after him for child support?

The only way would be to do a personal agreement between the mother & father, ideally having it filed with the court. However, at any time, either parent can utilize Child Support without the other parent's consent. If the Mother spends more time with the child than the Father, she is most likely entitled to child support.
