It might not be possible "for a mother to permanently waive all child support obligations that the father might have" - the point is the obligation is not to the mother, but to the Child Support Agency.

However I'd be astonished if the British Government doesn't have the right to do that in exceptional circumstances such as this. And they are exceptional circumstances, as Mary Warnock's comments I quoted indicate.
