an enteresting cenario. It was written under the federal guidlines, if such child is retained under gaurdianship of the state, then said support goes to the state, in this case, it could be both of you to pay to the state. You might want to inquire upon this, to avoid in possible back support acruing. Since the Custodial parent no longer retains the said child in there custodial care, then by law you are repreived of paying them,,but like I said it may require you to pay the state.

In our case, the child support from NCP was redirected to the state automatically, however, the cs came directly out of the ex's paycheck through the state.  Dh (who was CP) never saw a dime of it which is fair enough as he wasn't physically supporting the child during that time.  

I don't know how it would work if you pay directly to the ex.
