If the cousin is currently married to you, and is willing to accept parental responsibilities and adopt the child, then the father can give up his parental rights.

In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

Can an illegal immigrant mother receive child support if she leaves country and father gives up all rights?

If the father Legally gave up his parental rights - (signed legal papers), then he is no longer legally responsible to pay child support for the child. Did he give up parental rights so you could remove the child from the country? A family member of mine had to have her baby's father sign away his parental rights so he would not have to pay child support when he entered the military. So - once parental rights are signed away Legally, the father has NO obligation to pay child support. You cannot have it both ways - you cannot have him sign away his parental rights, yet still expect him to pay child support.

Termination of parental rights, TPR, is a long and very difficult, complex process. You need to be in touch with the child welfare agency in your area, and with an attorney. And by the way, neither parent terminates the rights of the other. It is the authority of the state that terminates parental rights.
