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.

Any mother can go to court in the US to claim child support form the father for a child she is caring for. Babies are not born by spontaneous combustion.

It is not clear from your question whether you are the father of the child.

If you are not the father of the child but are living with the child's mother you are not obligated to pay child support.

Is it legal for a mother to collect child support while the father is living with her and the child?

It depends on the state. In most states the father would still be required to pay child support, even though he is living with the mother and the child. However, if the father was financially supporting the mother and child, it's likely that the courts would suspend the child support order.
