Well no, but if the custodial parent need benefits or financial support form the state the non-custodial parent will be asked by the state for child support. Parents are first responsible to support their child.

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.

Most often this occurs because they've been pressured by the non-custodial parent.

A custodial parent can't decline or give up child support voluntarily in those states.
