In most states, the courts will not allow you to "sign over your rights" unless it is for the purpose of adoption and another person has agreed to become financially responsible for the child. If someone is adopting the child, signing a consent for the adoption will end all obligations but will not wipe out any child support arrearage.

No, when a mother or father relinquishes his parental rights he is no longer responsible for child support.

Termination of parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation.

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

Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.
