Unless the biological father is willing to voluntarily relinquish his rights to his child or children he cannot be forced to do so.

Be advised, the court will not terminate the rights of any parent who does not voluntarily submit to the action or who cannot be proven to be have committed a serious offense (physical abuse, endangerment, etc.) against his or her child/children.

How do you stop child support if the non-custodial parent wants nothing to do with the child but refuses to waive their parental rights so your spouse can adopt the child?

File suit to have the support order rescinded. However, child support and parental rights are two entirely different issues and a parent cannot be forced to relinquish his or her rights to their biological child. Voluntarily requesting child support termination does not affect the non custodial parent's custodial or visitation rights. The court will only terminate parental rights in cases of documented neglect and/or abuse, and sometimes not even then. In some instances rather than terminating rights supervised visitation will be ordered.
