Consult the laws in the state in which you reside that pertain to parental responsibility.

If you truly mean rights (such as visitation), you can just walk away. However, In Indiana, a father cannot "relinquish" parental obligations such as support unilaterally.

He will also very likely have to continue paying child support that he…

They can, but only if the biological father and both sets of grandparents (if alive) dont argue it.

What rights do the mothers adult children have to their mothers estate if she dies before their step father?

Even though a parent is allowed to give up their rights to a child/children, the court will not release them from their financial obligations. Those obligations include court ordered child support and probably adequate medical coverage.

Can two separate families adopt children from a mother who can no longer support her children and wants to relinquish her rights?
THE VERY SIMPLE answer is yes. BUT...there are a lot of buts. If a parent wishes to give up or "relinquish parental rights", the state agency that handles foster care, adoptions, temporary placements etc... has to take into consideration what is best for the child (children). Generally, they look for relatives; aunts, uncles, grandparents, to keep the children in familiar family surroundings. If no relative can be found, then they look for foster families or…
