Yes, as they are separate issues.

However, a custodial parent can request a child support order at any time. Also, some jurisdictions do not allow parents to decide that the non-custodial parent will not pay child support. The view is that every child is entitled to be supported by both parents. If the custodial parent doesn't need it then the payments should be placed in a savings account to pay for college. Also, if the custodial parent and child are receiving any assistance then the non-custodial parent will be required make payments to the state.

File for a change of custody. File for stopping child support.

Is it legal to pay a parent to relinquish custody of a child in Texas?

No, because it is considered bribing, and even if you could, I doubt a parent would give up a child for money if they are suing or have custody in the first place. If you want said child, you can sue for custody of the child. If you cannot gain custody, then the next best thing to do is sue for visitation.It's not legal to pay a parent to relinquish custody of a child in any state! But if the parent in question has a child support award, he or she will be free of paying child support or being in any way responsible for the child from that day forward.
