Best Answer

Court ordered child support is to be paid to the person that is caring for the child. If there is a dispute over who that person should be, it is a matter for the court to decide not the parent paying the support. The fact that the child may move in with another relative is not legal grounds for stopping support payments.

What happens if you are paying child support to a mother and the child is not living with her do we pay support still to the mother?

If you are paying child support to a mother and the child is not living with her, you are still obligated to pay her if you have a court order to do so. In that case, you can petition the court to change the order. You can expect that you will have to pay whoever has the child instead of paying the mother.
