Yes, the grandfather should receive the funds, but you will need to petition the court to make this happen if there is a court order directing child support payments. If dad pays child support to grandfather instead of to mom, and dad is ordered to pay to mom, dad will be in trouble. Therefore, you must change the order.
You should immediately speak with the North Carolina Child Support Enforcement. Best of luck.
