Giving up parental rights has nothing to do with paying support. As the natural father, you are obligated to support the child the mother will be raising and can be ordered to do so by the court. You made the decisions; the consequences are yours. Think of the child and his or her needs through childhood. Would you want to be left behind because your father didn't want to support you?
Relinquishing parental rights does not terminate support; however, generally, adoption does.

Generally you still have to pay child support even though you are giving up your parental rights unless the child is being adopted.
If the father Legally gave up his parental rights - (signed legal papers), then he is no longer legally responsible to pay child support for the child. Did he give up parental rights so you could remove the child from the country? A family member of mine had to have her baby's father sign away his parental rights so he would not have to pay child support when he entered the military. So - once parental rights are signed away Legally, the father has NO obligation to pay child support. You cannot have it both ways - you cannot have him sign away his parental rights, yet still expect him to pay child support.
Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.
Their parental rights will depend upon each situation. If the father is good and is paying child support, he should be able to get just as much parental rights as the mother.
