You owe your child the support and should make every effort to do so--legally. There are jobs, if you keep looking, where your felony will not matter, but they may be entry level and not as much money as you would wish. These are survival jobs, and eventually you will be able to build on the success you have from those. Get some good advice about job hunting, make sure your grooming and clothing is appropriately nice (dress for success: preppy, covers tatoos) and so on.

What happens in Texas if you sign over your parental rights?

If you sign over your parental rights, you do just that. You forfit any rights whatsoever you have to the child in question. You will have no legal relation to the child and no right to visit, make decisions for, or claim to be the parent of said child. You are also absolved from paying any future child support. This legal action is not reversible, and takes extreme court measure and consideration.

Does the non-custodial parent have to pay child support while the child lives with him for 3 months of the year?

Well actually, it depends. A non-custodial parent can still have liberal, defined visitation and if that parent, say has 3 days a week or every weekend, and their income is vastly lower than the income of the custodial parent then there would be an avenue in many states where that 'non-custodial' parent would be entitled to child support. Again, it would vary on a number of factors including what you mean by non-custodial. If non-custodial includes no physical or legal custody and/or no visitation at all, the avenue seems virtually impossible. However, simply being non-custodial would not be the single defining point. In fact, there wouldn't be a single variable that would determine the answer to this question (particularly as state law were weighed in). Best advice, contact an attorney, many will provide free first consultations.
