This doesn't answer your question, but I thought you might find this website intersting:
Please note: "...the Minnesota Courts of Appeals have consistently ruled that a voluntary termination of parental rights for reasons other than to facilitate adoption works a substantial detrimental effect on a child, who will be forced to look solely to his custodial parent to meet all of his needs. The effect is that District Court Judges are extremely reluctant to terminate parent's rights voluntarily and certainly not where the termination is not agreed upon by the custodial parent."
No, when a mother or father relinquishes his parental rights he is no longer responsible for child support.
In the United States the father has no rights until the child is born.
Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.
An unmarried father cannot "choose" to not pay child support. The laws in every state require that a father pay for the support of his child. The mother must bring an action to the appropriate court so that a child support order can be established. Visitation rights are separate and a father can have visitation rights established by the court. Visitation rights are not dependent on paying child support.
if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Signing rights away will not stop any child support from being taken from the father. If the child is the fathers then he is financially responsible for the child weather he has rights or not.
How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?
Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.
You can sign your rights away but you will still have to pay child support if you are the father or mother of the child. There is no way to avoid paying child support.
As you have now given up your rights to the child you do not have to pay back child support.
Termination of parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation.
He is still the father with/without child support and has rights. Take him to court to get the child support and make arrangements for your move to a different state.
No. He can sign over his rights but he would still be liable to pay child support. The only time he doesn't have to pay child support is if a stepdad wanted to adopt the child, then the biological father doesn't have to pay child support if he signs his rights away.
If not married he has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. If married to the mother they have equal rights to the child.
Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -
No he does not because he is not the child's parent anymore.
Depends on your state, but courts say child support and visitation are two totally different subjects and are not considered together. Father has visitation rights irrespective of whether or not he pays child support.
You don't. He has his rights as well.
Only if the child is adopted. Otherwise signing your parental rights away means you will still pay child support.
Child support would generally go to the person raising the child. Mother might even be ordered to pay to father.
