File a voluntary relinquishment of parental obligations in the state court of venue. Each state has set TPR requirements that must be met, if the judge believes such action is in the best interest of the child/children ALL parental rights will be terminated.

Guardians do not relinquish parental rights. Courts terminate parental rights when a guardian is appointed. The guardian must file a petition with the probate and family court to be appointed the child's guardian.

You need to get a form from the courthouse that allows you to relinquish parental rights. The process is the same as that of signing away parental rights to a natural child.

You can't relinquish your rights unless your "person who has the children" wants you to do it. If she/he does, they can file for a Termination of Parental Rights.

Yes, voluntarily relinquishing your parental rights does not excuse you from having to pay child support.

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.

You can relinquish rights, a court decides your obligations.

If you relinquish your parental rights, you are still not going to get child support payments. The child support is for the child.

In all 50 states, you cannot relinquish parental rights "just because" unless a child is being placed for adoption. Otherwise, there would be an influx of people trying to get out of paying child support or meeting other parental obligations by signing over their rights. Under certain (and dire) circumstances, parental rights may be involuntarily terminated by the court.

You can relinquish parental rights, but it does not absolve you of paying child support. When you relinquish your rights as a father, you are still a parent under the eyes of the law. You may also want to consider who's best being served by you removing yourself from your child's life just so as not to have to help raise him or her.

To legally relinquish his parental rights he would need to file a Termination of Parental Rights petition in the state court in the county in which the child resides.

The courts may give custody/guardianship of the child to someone else without your relinquishing your parental rights. The court may terminate your parental rights upon a finding that you are an unfit parent.

you don't. 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.
