In Texas do you have to pay child support if you give up all your rights and the mother disagrees?

If Mom needs Dad's financial support in order to provide for that child, the court is not going to allow him to simply walk away (even if he's willing to give up his parental rights) and leave the child without the financial assistance that's needed.

In this case even if both have agreed that the husband would relinquish his parental rights , then there is no need to support the child even in texas.

No. Child support, visitation, custody etc are all separate issues. The court will see to what is best for the child and one parent can not deny the parental rights of the other.

It's possible to give up his rights but he will not get out of paying child support.

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

A mother can stop child support in Texas, provided she does not receive public assistance. She must close the case with the Texas AG. Beware, that she can do this and could later attempt to open it again. I would go to an attorney if this is the case.

As you have now given up your rights to the child you do not have to pay back child support.

how do i give up rights to my children in the state of texas. I do love them, but their mother is not so good to me or them

He will have to pay support until/unless the child is adopted.

If there is a presumption that not being ordered to pay child support prevents him from applying for parental access rights to the child, then this is not the case. He can make this application regardless of any support order. Further, he can set up a voluntary order of support over the objections of the mother.

Terminating one's parental rights does not terminate one's parental responsibilities.

Yes, you do still have rights in Texas even if you owe $20,000 in back child support. However, if you do not take the necessary steps to address this issue, you might find yourself in prison. If incarcerated, your rights will be drastically reduced.

I know of a close friend who has given up his parental rights in the state of Texas. <a href="http://www.child-support-laws-state-by-state.com/fathers-rights-in-child-support.html" target="_blank">

Arrears and current support, also, unless/until the child is adopted.

In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

The State of Texas child enforcement agency would have it. Sometimes it takes a couple weeks to get to the mother. The state would still have it if they haven't given it to the mother.

User Avatar

You can't fully relinquish your rights until that back child support is paid. So you have to either pay it first or the custodial parent voluntarily waives it.

User Avatar

Yes, however that does not alleviate a child support obligation. see links below
