In depends on the state. In some states, the custodial parent can voluntarily decline to receive child support. In other states, the non-custodial parent is legally required to pay child support, whether or not the custodial parent accepts it.

If you sign over your rights as a father in the state of Minnesota do you still have to pay child support?

Actually, that person is wrong. If you sign over your parental rights, you are giving up any and all reposibilities for this child to their mother. It is that same as if you were going to give the child up for adoption, you wouldn't pay the adoptive parents for taking it would you? No. You basically are adopting the child onto the mother and so you have no more rights to say how the child is raised and whatnot, and would no longer have to pay child support seeing how legally, the child is no longer yours at all. All physical and financial reposibilities would be gone. But the mother does have to agree to this and also sign the paperwork saying she wants this, and also, if you have any back child support you have not paid you will still have to pay it unless the mother signs the paperwork saying she will "forgive" that and doesn't care to get it.
