The custodial parent usually receives rather than pays child support.

If one parent has been ordered to pay child support and neglects to do so, the other parent can petition the court to suspend or terminate parental rights, including visitations. It is up to the court to make that decision.

In the state of Texas if you are seventeen and your parent is receiving child support does the child have to live at home for parent to continue child support?

Yes. Child support is for the "custodial parent". If you are not living at home with your custodial parent, then they are no longer eligible to receive child support. However, the non-custodial parent can request a modification if the child is no longer living with the custodial parent and that includes a change of custody. A 17 yr old is not emancipated in Texas, unless proper procedures through the courts have taken place. If that is the case, then the custodial parent and child are no longer eligible for child support.

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.
