Minor children have little recourse in deciding which parent they want to live with. They do, however have the right to express their preference/feelings to the judge.

Unless the custodial order specifically forbids either parent from having significant others from living or engaging in an extended stay at their residence, there would be no basis for contention. This does not mean that a parent could not petition the court to have the oder amended to include such stipulations. But unless just cause such as child endangerment could be proven, it's unlikely the motion would be granted..

How do you take someone off childsupport?

It requires a motion to the court. If there is a legitimate reason for this, an official request can be made with the Office of Child Support Enforcement by the obligee parent. However, the obligor parent should only allow this in cases where the parents are back living together, and not because so called "other arrangements" have been made. This can lead to significant problems if the obligee parent changes their mind at some point in the future and claims no-support, or worse, by moving to another state and filing a new claim, retroactive.
