If a parent gives up his or her parental rights, can the other parent still file for child support, and does that parent have any legal visitation rights to the child.
1 Answer from Attorneys
If a judge actually ORDERS the termination of parental rights (merely filing for it isn't enough - a parent can't just give up his rights - a judge must make a decision that termination of the parental rights is in the child's best interest) - there will be no ongoing child support (with a VERY few exceptions). The "terminated" parent will (generally - 99% of cases) have no legal rights to the child at all, and no "visitation." Generally, an order terminating parental rights does NOT eliminate past-due child support.
