The court always considers the welfare of the child(ren) before anything else. The father might be allowed to relinquish parental rights, but he would not be relieved financial obligations, such as child support, medical coverage and so forth.

What rights does an unmarried man have to a child when the mother wants no contact?

Assuming you mean a biological father of a child born to an unwed mother. The rights a guy who fathers a child out of wedlock vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. For example, in some places the father has to be notified before the child can be put up for adoption; in other places the guy has no rights if he is not married to the mother. Even if he would normally have rights, a court may still deny or revoke rights to see the child because of an offense. If he is the biological father of the child and you as the mother are keeping the child from him he can actually fight you in court and potentially win custody of the child. Sadly it is rather common for a mother to move and take the child with her and the father has no recourse to force her to grant access to the child. You can go to court to get them to tell the mother to grant you access to the child, but the courts seldom enforce those rulings for unmarried fathers.

Do you have to pay child support if the mother excludes your rights?

First, without a court order, the mother cannot prohibit the father from seeing the child. If he has not voluntarily given up his rights to the child, and a judge has not created a custody schedule, the father has as much right to see the child as the mother.Second, if the father does voluntarily give up his parenting rights, or a judge does involuntarily remove his parenting rights (or awards full custody to the mother), the father would still owe child support until his child reaches the age of majority and has graduated high school.

If an unmarried father chooses not to pay child support does he still have rights to child in CA?

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.

Are you still a parent if you have no legal rights to your children?

A parent is the biological or legally adoptive mother or father. If you have lost custody of your child you are still the child's parent in that sense. If you have allowed your child to be legally adopted you may not be in their life but you are still their parent in that sense. In a legal sense you can no longer make any decisions for the child and have no parental rights.

If illegal immigrant mother leaves country and father gives up all rights does he still have to pay child support?

If the father gave up all parental rights - then he would not have to pay child support. Plus, if the mother is out of the country and is an illegal immigrant - she would not be a part of the child support system. She would need to be in this country. But, the main things is - if the father "legally" (signed papers) to give up his parental rights, then he is not liable for child support.
