Generally speaking, no, he doesn't, not if he was ordered to pay child support. There may be something called a "standing order" however, that may speak to this. Standing Orders are usually attached to the initial pleading for divorce/restraining order, whatever's been filed and don't require a hearing to go into effect. So your son should carefully read all the paperwork that he's been served with and make sure there are no orders requiring him to maintain household bills/payments.
Otherwise, if child support is all that was ordered then that's all he legally has to pay.
