If she is working and he has custody, yes, it's very likely that she would be required to pay child support.

Yes. A lot depends on the state and the individual circumstances, but for the most part, the spouse who left has to write some checks.

Child support isn't based on gender (anymore), it's based on who does the earning and who does the housework. It's very often the man who does the earning and the woman who stays home but not always. So yes, women have to pay child support if they are the ones doing the earning (if it's 50/50 then the child support is 50/50).
