Support and Custody are separate. So yes if you are behind on child support you can still petition the court for joint legal custody. You would need to show some significant change in circumstances from when the current custody order was entered. However, your failure to pay child support would not compel the judge to rule in your favor since you have shown yourself to be unreliable, irresponsible and in contempt of a court order.

You will have to explain your failure to pay court ordered child support to the judge. The amount you owe doesn't go away. Back child support can be taken out of your wages or out of your tax return.

Do you have to pay child support if child is not with mother?

Depends on the state. Technically child support is paid to the custodial parent. This means the parent actually has custody, not a parent who allows their child to live elsewhere. Therefore, if the custodial parent does not have custody, check your state laws. Another adult can be allowed to collect child support for the benefit of the child, but a non-custodial biological father can also be given custody in this case.
