It depends. If she hasn't been served, yes. If it's just temporary, yes. If there isn't a standing order, yes. If there isn't a parenting plan in place that she would be in violation of, yes. You need to consult with an attorney who can review your case and give you advice.

Working Money to buy everything for herself. Ex said since our daughter has a job she doesn’t need to use the childsupport money for her. can I go back to court and modify childsupport since my daughter is working and buying her own things?
You likely are not going to get a decrease based on these facts. Your daughter is not paying rent or utilities - things child support covers. If she has a job to buy extras, like clothes she wants and going to the movies, that doesn't mean you get a reduction in child support.
No. In fact, you will be in contempt of court, if he has custody and you keep her at your house without permission. She is old enough to pick who she wants to live with so you need to consult with an attorney about filing a modification.
