Every parent has a duty to support his/her children which includes providing for clothing, food, and shelter. Generally, the parent that is not the custodian parent is ordered to pay some child support when the custodian parent makes a motion for child support with the court of the proper jurisdiction.
The non-custodial parent
also generally has a right to visitation (unless a court order indicates otherwise) so you would have to inform the other parent of residency changes in order to allow the other parent to exercise their visitation rights. You may also need to notify the other parent if you have joint legal custody and the move could alter the child's school. If you intend to move out of state then you should also notify the other parent and you need to petition the court for permission, generally speaking.
