If there is a court order in place requiring you to pay support the answer is obviously..Yes. If the children have been removed by CFS or whatever it is called in your state. You will be notified at the hearing as to your financial obligations. There is always a Family Court hearing whenever children are taken into protective custody. If they are living with a relative, or spouse then that is a different matter. This is a situation where you should seek legal counsel.

You will have to petition the Court to alter your child support agreement. Any changes, even temporary, would have to be acceptable to the Court.

Yes. That person should inform the court of their status and child support obligations may be temporarily reduced.

Yes the child support can be revoked since the parent receiving support is no longer legally supporting the child

Child support is based of how much the main guardian spends on the child/children.
