My ex wants to relinquish his parental rights to our 14 month old son to avoid paying child support. He has not attempted to see him since he was four days old but we are currently going through the processes of a custody battle. My ex has two children and another on the way, all different mothers, and does not make very much money. We are having the child support hearing in a few weeks and he doesnt want to have to pay. I was wondering if, in the state of Missouri, it is possible? I was under the impression that the only way a parent could sign over their rights was to make way for adoption.
