Does a non-custodial parent have to pay child support if all children live with them and not the custodial parent?

In Massachusetts: If there is a child support order (issued by the court) then the 'non-custodial' parent will have to pay child support to the 'custodial' parent until the child support order is modified by the court. Even if the kids actually live with the 'non-custodial' parent, that parent still has to follow the current court orders, no matter how unfair. If the kids are living with the non-custodial parent, though, it shouldn't be too difficult to go into court and get the child support order changed.

The minor female could not arbitrarily change residences without the permission of the custodial parent or the court. In addition, the custodial parent would not be required to pay support unless the non custodial parent filed for primary custody and support payments and the court granted the petition. The parent paying child support is legally obligated to continue with the terms of the court order until said order is rescinded or amended. To cease the action, regardless of the change of circumstances would place the parent in a position of contempt of a court order.

Why would a custodial parent drop child support?

Most often this occurs because they've been pressured by the non-custodial parent. A common tactic is for the non-custodial parent to threaten to take away custody if he or she has to pay child support. The custodial parent will then consent to not get child support to avoid a costly custody battle. This is why most states have made child support mandatory. A custodial parent can't decline or give up child support voluntarily in those states.
