You can't, unless there is someone else seeking to adopt the child.

Even if you do not see your child that has nothing to do with child support. You can not sign off your parental rights unless someone else is willing to take that responsibility. The child is your responsibility seen or unseen. Even if mother goes on welfare the state will ask you to pay back the money they spent to take care of your child.

I have done this for a client before. Give me a call, make an appointment to come see me, and let's get moving on this for you. No charge for the first office visit. I know people worry about how expensive a lawyer is, so I am careful to be as inexpensive as I can for my clients. Before you spend a dime, you will know how much this is likely to be.

    Those things are not options available to you. If you don't visit your child/children, you are not exercising your visitation rights. You can't get out of your obligation to support your children unless your children are adopted, with a termination of your parental rights incident to that adoption.

    You can do most things by agreement. You could try to negotiate a lump payment. If there is not another parent in your place, without an agreement, you are stuck. Stay well.

    Find someone to adopt the child and take over your responsibilities. Otherwise, you can't. Good luck.

    The only way to do so would be to have a probate court or juvenile court terminate your parental rights.
