In some states the non custodial parent is required to pay child support even if the custodial parent is not working, especially if the custodial parent is receiving welfare, AFDC, or public assistance. what will happen is that the noncustodial parent pays child support and the departmant of social services will take that payment and use it as a full or partial payment towards the monthly assistance grant. I do not know what the standard policy is for alimony.

What is the difference between alimony and child support?

Alimony has nothing to do with child support, meaning the divorced couple doesn't have to have children in order for an ex spouse to receive alimony.

Also, child support is granted to the custodial parent after a divorce, while alimony depends on the state in which the couple divorce, and the conditions and circumstances of the marriage/divorce, and is not always granted to the ex spouse who is asking for the alimony.

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.
