Greetings. If he is paying child support currently, or has in the past year, than you cannot terminate his parental rights. If you do terminate his parental rights that he will not pay child support any longer, although your child will still be able to inherit from him, unless your child is adopted by your new spouse. Thank you and best of luck.
