My daughters mother moved to upstate New York just outside of PA and she left my daughter to stay here in the Bronx to live with her grandparents and she never consulted me or advised me of the move.
If you wish to take custody of your daughters, you have the right to do so. As the residential parent, you would not be obligated to pay child support
You must pay child support until you have a court order that says you are no longer required to pay it.
You should file for custody. Your rights are superior to those of the grandparents. If you get custody, you can file for child support against the mother.
The short answer is: if there's a child support order in place, you could only file a petition to change the payee (the court should not outright terminate the order). If you wish to terminate child support in this instance, your better remedy is to file for custody. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
