The persons in custody of the child must file for legal guardianship and request the court modify the child support order. The person needs legal standing to receive child support.

the guardian should file to have the order transferred to them as well as file on the parent currently receiving it to also pay. Or the obligor parent should file for custody.

No. The parent is still the parent and responsible for the child abandoned or not. The child support payments will just keep adding up until the person is found.
