Q: How do i sign away my parental rights without having to pay any child support.
5 year old son.
I've only seen him for about 9 months of his life.
The mother makes my life a living hell and it will be easier for me emotionally just to have no part of his life seeing as the mother and her husband have been raising him since he was born.
A: If everyone agreed, mom’s new husband could do a step-parent adoption, which would end your parental rights and support obligation.

A: You should certainly consult a family law attorney in your area as this is a very important decision that should not be taken lightly. As Mr. Levine has correctly pointed out, if the child's mother's husband is willing to adopt your child, you could voluntarily terminate your parental rights which would end your child support obligation.
