I wish to inform you that child support order only determines amount of child support to be paid by one parent to another. In case of child custody a child custody order from court is required to determine which parent will keep child. In some circumstance there may be a single order from court in which it may determine both the issues. Hence child support order may not determine child custody unless court order state in it which parent will keep child.

No, they are separate issues. Keep in mind legal custody (usually 50/50) is not the same as physical custody.

It is only an interim order and it is not final as any party can bring an amendment based on the situation. So a child custody is not determined by a support order.

A support order simply attempts to balance out the inequity of expenses in raising children. It is entirely separate from custody. It is possible for a person to only have occasional visitation and receive support if the income disparity is very extreme.
