One in which just moved back in with me on Aug. 11 does the other parent have to pay back child support for that month until we get the child support straighten out througth the courts?

The custodial parent is not required to account how the funds received are spent. See case Willams vs. Williams, 316 Ill. App. 6.

Child support if modified and in your case it appears that it should will go back to the date the petition was filed requesting the modification. The chnage can go back even further if both parties agree.
