Is it true that in the state of Texas, a parent can get out of paying child support if they sign over all parental rights?

The link CI gave explains just what I thought. You cannot just sign over your parental rights unless someone wants to adopt the child.

If it were that easy, parent would be terminating their parental rights left and right to avoid paying support and thank goodness it doesn't work that way.

The parent that's not in the picture should take care of the child until someone steps up and says that they'll do it.

We went through a simular situation with my oldest. Well, not 'mine', but I did adopt him. His sperm-donor (my wife's term for it) would regularly break his weekend, was late with child support payments, changed jobs to get out of the garnishment. . . stuff like that. Finally, he blew one weekend too many, and my wife said "Why don't you just let Turner adopt him?" He jumped on the chance. It was as if he was trying to maneuver us into it. Maybe he was, but I dobut it. Didn't even think about it. Sad, kinda. Didn't care enough about his first born to take care of him.

Well, I like to think that my son got the best of the deal. Sure, I'm not the best dad, but I'm a helluva lot better than the SD was.

But I digress. The important thing is that the child is taken care of first. Not whether or not the parent wants to do it. I mean, if they didn't want to do it, they should have made sure it wouldn't happen, right?
