Some states will allow a biological parent to relinquish parental rights in situations other than adoption proceedings. However, relinquishment of parental rights WILL NOT release the petitioning parent from financial support unless the child is officially adopted. Financial support in most cases includes adequate medical coverage as well as the ordered support amount, until the child reaches the age of majority or the age stipulated in the support order. In some cases a support order can be modified to change the minimum support age, this usually pertains to a disabled child, or one who is still attending high school.

The father must petition the family court and the mother will be notified. Although a court may, under certain circumstances, allow a father to give up his rights to his child, that does not relieve him of his legal obligation of child support. The terminating of parental rights is generally associated with a legal adoption of a child- another person is petitioning to legally adopt the child along with all the obligations of parenthood. It will not allow a father to simply withdraw from the obligation of financial support by giving up his parental rights.

Depending on where you live, it's possible (although probably unlikely) that a judge will allow you give up your parental rights without the consent of the custodial parent. You will still have to pay child support though.
