File suit to have the support order rescinded.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.

How do you take away parental rights for non payment of child support?

The parent have to give up his parental rights voluntarily or the court can do it but child support can be taken out of his wages if he refuses to pay. There are many ways the court can see to that he pays. They don't end someones parental rights for not paying child support because even if the parental rights are gone they still have to pay child support. If you mean his custody or visitation rights, they are a separate issue and does not involve child support. One have to see to what is best for the child and try to let the child have both parents in their life. So go back to the court that issued the child support order and tell them that he is breaking the order by not paying.

Yes, as an adult you can sue a noncustodial parent for back child support. However it is a different story if the noncustodial parent has never been ordered to pay child support. You can still sue them for a percentage of their assets. I am currently working on a case in which my client is sueing his father for 15 years of back child support. Any divorce lawyer can handle this case for you.
