You need to contact an attorney that is licensed in South Carolina. In North Carolina you cannot voluntarily terminate your parental rights to avoid paying child support, I imagine the law is the same in SC. If the mother met someone that wanted to adopt the child, you could consent and that would terminate your rights. If there is already a child support order in place I would seek out a SC attorney right away. Look for someone in the county where the lawsuit was filed or, if the SC county is one near the NC border, you may be able to find an attorney in Charlotte that is licensed in SC also. You can check the North Carolina State Bar Website or google attorney referral services.
