    Child support/giving up my rights
    I have 2 kids with my ex. I have been paying $400.00 for child support monthly, but I don't have contact with the kids.I was wondering if there is any way I can sign over my rights. I tried talking her into it , but she won't because she wants the child support money. I have moved on with my life. My wife and I have two kids together and are happy.

    So you are remarried, have 2 kids, are happy, you don't have any contact with the first 2 children, want to cut all ties with your first 2 children and no longer pay any part of their support - and you don't know how to accomplish this because your first wife won't allow you to relinquish your rights.

    Is that the question?

    Signing away your rights does N0T get you out of paying child support. It only takes away any say/rights you have in their lives.

    It sounds as though your ex just wants the CS money, but it sounds like you just don't want to pay it anymore. You can sign off your parental rights, but that has to be a decision she agrees with.

    This is a link that will give you some more information on waiving your parental rights, I hope it helps.

    Basically the only way you can get out of paying child support if she remarries and the new husband adopts them.
    Some states may differ I think Minnesota is one.

    If the mother is not in agreement, you aren't going to get anywhere.

    The only way you can voluntarily sign away your rights is if the mother agrees and has someone to adopt the child in your place.

    What matters in the case is that if you love your two kids with you ex then it would be in the 2 kids best interest for you to keep paying for child support. The children will respect you latter on in life. Kids always need there parents.

    Hello again, Questions:

    What is in the best interest of the kids is that they EAT. It doesn't matter whether he loves them, nor does it matter if they respect him.

    Hello dead beat dad, sorry why are you not seeing your own child,

    Well the bad news is that giving up your rights, unless a new partner will adopt, has nothing to do with child support at all. You can give up your rights, if you can, but your obligation to pay child support does not stop.

    So even if you could give up your rights, ( that is rights, to visit, to have a say in the child's life)
    So write the check and try to justify why you will not stand up and be a father and visit your children
