Do I need to pay child support if my daughters mother moved but left my daughter with her grandparents without my consent?

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.

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.
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
