How do I sign over my parental rights if I live in Georgia and my ex and my daughter lives Arkansas?

You can only surrender your parental rights in connection with an adoption proceeding. You were recently sued for child support, and the law requires you to pay child support if the DNA testing determines you are the father of your child. You had sexual relations with the mother of your child, and now the court will compel you to make support payments. You have the option of employing counsel in AR, and suing the mother to obtain parental rights to your child. You will be required to pay support, whether you obtain visitation rights with your daughter, or not.
My answers to questions posed on this site is no substitute for obtaining legal advice from competent local counsel.
Doesn't work that way---you cannot sign away rights just to make matters more convenient for you---no court in any state would take action on that basis.
