If "taken away" means the the court permanently terminated parental rights or parental rights were voluntarily relinquished making the child eligible for adoption, then the answer is no; the biological parent(s) have no legal rights of any sort to the child. However, if the adoptive parents can voluntarily agree to the visitation of a biological parent without there being any action on the part of the court.

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.

How can you get your child back after being adopted?

If you have lost your parental rights, or you gave your child up for adoption, your options for getting your child back are negligible. The only way you could ever even dream of getting your child back is to higher a lawyer and go to court and fight to get your child back. This will be a long drawn out fight because the family that adopted the child are going to fight you every step of the way, and if you had your parental rights taken away, then CPS is going to be fighting you every step of the way as well. Most times, these court cases are not going to end up the way you hope.
