In Indiana if you sign over your parental rights do you still have to pay child support?

Under Indiana law, IC 31-35-1-12 (2)(a) once parental rights are terminated, all obligations of support are terminated at that time as well. You will ONLY have your rights terminated, however, where a court determinest that it is in the best interests of the child. You will however be required to pay the child support that was ordered before the termination. It only stops after parental rights are terminated, but does not mean you do not owe the back support.
