You cannot give up parental rights unless both parties agree. You will have to pay child support if she wants you to. * Either parent may file for termination of parental rights in the appropriate state court,that usually would be a circuit court. Contact the clerk or court administrator of the circuit court in the city or county of residence for specific information. Termination of parental rights is usually allowed when it is in the best interest of the child and/or to allow a child to become eligible for adoption. Any interested party including another biological parent may contest the TPR petition if they so choose.
