In California if a mother is on welfare and the father signs all rights of the child over to the mother to stop child support does welfare get shut off for the mother?
No as he can't do that. Not even the courts have the authority to exempt the man from paying child support when Welfare is involved. The mother has no say or authority over the child support. She forfeited that right when signing up. She would have to first give up her claim to Welfare benefits before any action could be taken on child support.
Child support is calculated based on income of the father (or mother in such a case). If the father is unemployed his child support will still be calculated based on whatever minimum wage is in your state. The only time this does not apply is when the father is on disability. Welfare shouldn't matter.
Any mother can go to court in the US to claim child support form the father for a child she is caring for. Babies are not born by spontaneous combustion. The father is as responsible for the child's welfare as is the mother. If the child is living with the father and custody given to the father, the mother is liable for child support, too.

If a 15-year-old moves to California to live with her mother after living with her 11-year-old brother and father for 4 years in Washington and her brother stays in WA how does child support work?
If your father was given total custody of you and your brother then he could go to court to get you back.

If your father had total custody and your mother…

They give her welfare so she can support her child just like you have to support yours along with her mother. If she was not on welfare and without a job no one would support her child. So yes, until she is emancipated you have to provide for your child. I doubt they give her enough to pay rent, food, clothes, electrical bill etc that your money goes to.
If the child lives with father but the mother received custody in the divorce does father still pay the mother child support?
If you are not collecting Welfare, and your intent is to release him from the obligation, a motion will need to be made to the court, however if he already has parental rights, stopping support will not include stopping his access rights. Also, though the mother can file to suspend support, the man cannot in most of the country, whether he is the father or not.

It is not clear from your question whether you are the father of the child. If you are the father of the child, you are legally obligated to pay child support if a child support order has been entered by a court. If you are not the father of the child but are living with the child's mother you are not obligated to pay child support.
If the mother leaves the state before the child is born is the father required to pay child support?
Yes. Wrong! The only time some one pays "Back Child support" is if the work and do not pay the correct amount from their pay checks. If a person is unemployed the are not liabel for child support. It is the same as if a mother is not working: she can get welfare and she does not have to pay back the money.
