If a father signs over his rights to the child in the state of Louisiana does he still have to pay child support?

Only if he owes back child support. This can be written in the agreement that all arrears be terminated and his rights will be to the child if he signs.

If the court approves, yes. You still have to pay child support though.

By petitioning the family court in your parish of residence for the same. Termination of rights does not terminate child support obligations.

Relinquish his rights, yes; however, doing so will not terminate his child support obligation.

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.

Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.
