Can a father give up his rights to his child?

Yes. A father can give up their rights to a child at any age. However, legally they are still obligated to pay child support unless you drop the case completely. They are also legally obligated to pay back child support unless you drop that. Also, although they give up their rights legally to the child, in the eyes of the law, they are still the father. This means that the law can still go after them for child support if they want to.

There must be a court order terminating parental rights. A person cannot sign over their rights to another -- the law does not recognize such a procedure. Until the court issues an order, the father has retained their parental rights, and child support payments will need to continue according to the court order. If parental rights are terminated, there are no child support payments required

Even if you've given up parental rights, you'll still have to pay child support if it's been determined that you are the biological father. Child support is not payment to see the child. It's designed to help the primary custodial parent support the child in a single parent household.
