A modification need to be done to transfer the obligation from the father to the mother. see link below

No. You have remember that "support" is what the (usually) father pays the mother for the upkeep of the child. If the child moves out, the mother is no longer supporting the child and the father no longer needs to pay her.

The state in which she and her minor child/children currently reside.

No, when married the minor becomes emancipated.

Just because you're a minor doesn't mean you don't have to pay child support! You have to be responsible for the life you helped to create. Next time, remember to buy condoms.

The father is as responsible for the child's welfare as is the mother. If the child is living with the father and custody given to the father, the mother is liable for child support, too.

Yes. The custodial father has a right to child support from the mother depending on their respective economic circumstances. Many mothers pay child support.

A step father has no legal obligation to support a step child.

Depends on the circumstances. Please consider the situation. The biological father is living with the mother and child/children, therefore he is (or should be) aiding in the support of the household. If the father is not living with the mother and child the mother can and should file for support regardless of the status of her current relationship with the biological father. If you are referrring to state aid regarding the care of a minor child/children, the court will NOT allow such action when the biological father is present. Of course the family may qualify for other public assistance benefits based upon their current economic circumstances.

He can try, but the minor mother have equal rights to the child. They will not remove the child from her based on the fact that she is a minor as long as she is a fit parent.
