Originally Answered: If you give up your parental rights, do you still pay child support?
Any State that takes wage income from another is an infringement upon our Personal Property Rights, our Parental Property Rights and our Liberty.
It's a violation of our personal property rights, our parental property rights. Children, though more then property, are property still. Every person is more than a "thing" but a "thing" still. When you die, you have limited personal rights, the right to RIP; but you are still a thing; you are flesh and blood and bone.
Therefor, when speaking of property rights of parent over their child, we are speaking of blood property i.e. flesh and blood and the control of the child's will. Their will is what makes them more than a "thing", though a thing still. Because they are more than a thing, a person, children are also protected by the U.S. Constitution i.e. the right to Life (food, shelter), where they can grow into their Liberty, so they may Pursue Happiness.
In this light, parental property rights i.e. blood property rights have been upheld in Kingsley v. Kingsley. The only way for the government to take your property and send you the bill is to charge you with a crime.
As such, no divorce or breach of a natural contract is a crime. Yet, every parent is under duress as state laws dictate the removal of one's property against their will when a divorce or departure occurs. As such, any contract, any agreement, any law is no contract, no agreement, no law at all. marbury vs madison
This being the case; if the government takes your property without charging you with a crime, the government must compensate you for the property they have taken.
Additionally, there is an old legal axiom which states: you receive the benefit, you bare the burden. Which simply means Custody Equals Care. Under your roof, your bills. You have the benefit of the children, you have the burden. When your children are under your roof, you pay the bills.
Further, when anyone removes your blood property they are limiting your liberty to your property. When anyone takes your wage property, they are limiting your liberty to your property.
This is self-evident , consider the following...
Noah Webster - 1828
4. The exclusive right of possessing, enjoying and disposing of a thing;
5. Possession held on one’s own right.
9. Nearness or right.
Here I disclaim all my paternal care,
Propinquity and property of blood.

If you're unsure the one you lay down with, will stay with, then get a prenup first. In that prenup, outline exactly who is responsible for what. To pretend two people don't know what can happen when they lay down is laughable. It's like saying, if we plant an orange seed, we're not sure what we might get.
So, two laid down, three got up. Shocked? Really! Here's the thing, it was a WE agreement. The natural law agreement was, when WE are together, WE share the benefit and the burden of our property. If you want to trump the WE part of the agreement you need a prenup.
You need a prenup, to trump, the WE agreement.
So find a partner who is willing to agree to the following...
I (YOUR NAME) agree that you may leave me at anytime, for any reason, take my blood property i.e. my children, and send the the bill.
Though many states do not honor the U.S. Constitution, some may honor a postnup when it comes to children. You will have to check with his local child support office.
