AnswerLegally? When a mentally competent child turns 18 a parent has no legal obligation to the child. I have no idea if the child is mentally incompetent.

Morally? I guess that would be up the the parent and their relationship with the child.

I have a 20 year old Autistic son at home. Legally, I do not have to care for him but morally? I love him and do not want to see him homeless so he works and I handle his money so that he does not blow it all while I continue to teach him about the real world, bill and obligations so that one day he may be a productive citizen.

We make him pay rent which in turn I will give back to him when he moves out (even though he does not know that) and I make him purchase his personal products and clothing while I still prepare meals for the family so we do not make him purchase separate food unless he wishes to eat something else.

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


It depends on whether your parental rights are terminated legally and the circumstances. If the child is legally adopted and you give up your parental rights voluntarily your child support obligation will end. The law wants children to be supported by two parents. Giving up custody and visitation rights will not free you from the obligation of child support.


Nope. My dad did that. You have absolutely no responsibility to the child. It's like you were never there. GIVING UP ONE'S PARENTAL RIGHTS DOES NOT END ONE'S PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES. The child support obligation ends only if/when 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.


I know of no jurisdiction where giving up parental rights terminates one's child support obligation. However, if the child is eventually adopted, the biological parents' support obligation typically ends.


Parental rights and child support are two different issues. Signing over your parental rights has no effect on your payment obligation unless the ending of the payment obligation is mentioned on the document.


Terminating parental rights doesn't terminate one's child support obligation.


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


This does not terminate your obligation to pay support; however, adoption of the child would ordinarily terminate your obligation.

I can't agree with you. Why you have your rights without obligation ?


Yes, but doing so will not terminate your child support obligation.


Signing over one's parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation.


Yes, but that does not relinquish the obligation to pay child support. All it does is relinquish your right to see your child and have any type of decision making power in their lives. If the child is placed for adoption or your ex marries and their spouse adopts you child, your support obligation will end.


Giving up parental rights does not, in itself, terminate one's child support obligation. However, adoption usually terminates the biological parent's obligation.


I suggest you consult with the other parent and an attorney on this. However, keep in mind that terminating parental rights does not terminate one's support obligation.

Voluntarily or involuntarily? There are separate statutes covering each scenario. (In either types of termination, the obligation to pay child support does not end unless the child is being legally adopted).

Yes, but doing so will not relieve you of your support obligation.


This requires a motion to the court. However, this does not stop the support obligation. See related link below.



Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) is a court process which permanently ends all legal parental rights of a birthparent to a child. Termination of parental rights can be voluntary or involuntary. Termination of rights may often not terminate the obligation of the parent to pay child support unless the child is legally adopted by someone who assumes financial responsibility.
