These people may have signed something saying that they give up their rights, and their exes may go along with that by not seeking to enforce child support, but the only way that a person can legally be divested of parental rights is by way of a court order, and I know of no law in any state (outside of the context of adoption) that allows a parent voluntarily to surrender his her parental rights and, as a result, be absolved of any liability for child support.
By all means have your husband consult with a local attorney about this.

I'm going back 22 years...in the state of PA...
The dad and I were young and stupid when I had my daughter, but, the one thing the dad and I were both in agreement on was that I didn't want him to be a part of my daughters life and he did not want to be a part of my daughters life
I questioned my attorney about terminating his parental rights and I was told that even though the dad wanted nothing to do with me or our daughter I could not simply request that parental rights be terminated. On the flip side, the dad could not voluntarily request it either. Unless....
it was an adoptive situation.

Like I said, my case was 22 years ago but...
Yes, either of us could have VOLUNTARILY given up our parental rights....
in an adoptive situation.
What your saying just doesn't make sense. Good god, do you know how many times I would have gladly given up parental rights when my daughter hit the preteen and teen years? LOL
imagine if I could have simply just VOLUNTARILY given up parental rights because my daughter was growing up and in particular becoming social. Which meant she was spending more time at her friends and at dances so I never got to see her anyway...I was paying for food, clothes and shelter for a person I rarely saw...how is that fair?

Yes, well. In your original post you asked two questions, neither of which was, can your husband give up his rights to his sons? They were (I'm paraphrasing here):
1. How does your husband go about giving up his rights? and
2. If he does, will he have to continue paying child support?
In the preceding thread, you haven't indicated how your attorney answered either of these questions. Inquiring minds would like to know. . .

Michaela_84 I'd really like to know what the attorney said too.
Nowadays, if there is a father to be found, the GOVERNMENT isn't just letting him disappear into the sunset. There are CP's that have been on welfare for awhile, have government health benefits for the kids, get food stamps, etc and the government is clamping down...not the courts. As of late, government agencies want proof that dad does NOT exist or is incapable of providing CS, insurance, etc. They don't care where he lives or if he gets to actually see his kids. If they are his kids he is to pick up the slack, then if more help is needed the government will step in...but dad is found first!
About 2 years ago I was working with a man who never knew that a girl he dated for a short while had his baby. Seven years later she was forced to find him because CA felt he should be responsible for the child, not them, and they were terminating benefits for the child. He's been providing health insurance and paying child support for about a year now, but has only just recently gotten limited visitation with the child. Voluntary termination was discussed and then her attorney said it couldn't happen.
Michaela_84 before giving the attorneys you talked to any money, ask them for case specific information. I'm still not 100% convinced of what you've heard. In your husband's case he had a relationship which resulted in 2 boys and there is a custody agreement in place. So there is a CP (mom) and an NCP (dad). Don't think for a minute that NCP is going to be able to "sneak" this one by the CP...no way in hell...LOL I've been on the NCP side of things for too long and if the CP doesn't want NCP to give up parental rights your financial problems are going to get even worse. So the attorney is saying it can be done....well, I guess anything can be done...but at what cost my dear?
