If you are divorced and granted custody that court order is valid unless the other parent (or the state) get custody for whatever reason (if both parents become unfit etc).

There are 2 parents and according to the law both are allowed to seek custody of their child.

Do you have to pay child support if child is not with mother?

Depends on the state. Technically child support is paid to the custodial parent. This means the parent actually has custody, not a parent who allows their child to live elsewhere. Therefore, if the custodial parent does not have custody, check your state laws. Another adult can be allowed to collect child support for the benefit of the child, but a non-custodial biological father can also be given custody in this case.
