My answer to that would be 'No'. The father is responsible for providing child-support regardless of who has custody of the child; at least until the age of 18.

If a child moves into his grandmother's house and the father is still paying all the bills does the mother still have to pay child support to the father?

Depends how your child custody/support is laid out legally and the local laws in your area however, the monies that are paid for child support are to go to the person with custody or living with - hence the grandmother. Child support is to pay for the support of the child and if the child lives with the grandmother but the father is still paying for this it is a gray area. Either talk rationally with your husband as parents and adults not as ex's but if that is impossible I would definitely say contact a lawyer and get their advice. Good Luck!

Can a mother move out of state without telling father especially if father is paying child support?

Well, if he's paying child support, that means she has custody of at least one child who is under 18. So, by law, no, it is illegal for the mother to move out of state without telling the father.
