The issue is not the length of time that a child resides in a household but if the adult(s) of that household have been granted legal custody of said child, whether by being the custodial parent or legal guardian(s).

A grandparent can collect child support if they are the legal guardian or custodian of the child.

Your state's child support agency will be in charge of collecting any child support arrears up to the time when those arrears are satisfied.
