No, if the child is no longer living with the mother then she should not be receiving support. This would constitute a material change in circumstance and you should petition the court to modify the child support order, this is not always a fast process and you will need to continue to pay child support the way the court ordered you to until ordered otherwise. So to answer your question no he does not have to wait until the child is with him he can petition the court before this time.
