If "giving up custody" refers to a parent voluntarily relinquishing their parental rights to a minor child or children the consequences of a TPR being granted is that the parent loses all rights to the minor child/children permanently. A TPR cannot be rescinded by the parent nor revoked by the court. TPR decrees are not for the purpose of allowing a non custodial parent to be relieved of his or her financial obligations to minor children. They are usually only granted by the court to allow minor children to become eligible for adoption.
