Does child support stop if the child lives with his grandma but is supposed to be living with his mother?

Court ordered child support is to be paid to the person that is caring for the child. If there is a dispute over who that person should be, it is a matter for the court to decide not the parent paying the support. The fact that the child may move in with another relative is not legal grounds for stopping support payments.

What happens to child support payments if the mother dies and the child will not live with the father?

In simplest terms, the child support goes with the child. Most often it is not a matter of the child's choice with whom he will live. If the father has been making child support payments to the mother, and the mother dies, but the father still retains parental rights, the child automatically goes to the father's custody. If the mother has made guardian arrangements and the father has agreed to these (signed off), then the child support payments will automatically revert to the named guardian. It might require some adjustment on the part of the courts, but it is pretty automatic. If the father for what ever reason has lost parental rights, and the custodial mother has not named a guardian, the child will be placed with the next nearest relative, or if one cannot be located or none suitable are available be placed in foster care and the child support will go to the state. Child support follows the child.
