Do you really think the IRS is going to not go after money that is owed?  Especially when they have the authority to automatically deduct what is owed from the paycheck?

They will most definitely notify her and they will make her pay it back with interest and a penalty.

Went through an agency with the last family that I worked for.  The agency doesn't handle the tax withholding or reports necessary.  What the agency does is supposedly run a back ground check on the candidate.   Agencies (in my state, which is a high cost of living state) usually charge a minimum of $1,000 to place a nanny.  

Not trying to be argumentative, just pointing out my experience with an agency.

The first thing that you need to do is put her on the books.  Are you going to have a contract?  When I was a nanny, it was a year contract that clearly spelled out how much was paid and what the duties are.  

That will be sufficient for the courts.  

Now for the IRS.  You will need a copy of the social security number.  The nanny will need to fill out a W-4 stating what her withholdings are.  And you will need to contact the IRS to send you the paperwork (along with a tax table of how much to withhold), FICA is pretty standard.  You pay a percentage (part of the cost of the nanny so be sure to include this when giving paperwork to the courts for proof of how much you are paying).  You also have State taxes (if applicable), unemployment and disability tax.  

Your best bet is to contact an accountant who deals in taxes to help you set this up.

The only way that a court will let you give up your parental rights is if there is someone who is willing to adopt the child(ren).

Child support is based on your income.   You had this financial obligation BEFORE you had another baby.  Having another baby doesn't relieve you of that.  And in a lot of states, it doesn't even reduce the support.  The first children were there first.

And judges don't take away custody and set no visitation at all without a damn good reason.  Even the ones who are pro-mom.  They usually set some type of visitation for the ncp.  Even if it is supervised.

Contact the child support enforcement agency and report the employer.  If that doesn't accomplish anything, take the employer to court.  They are violating the law.  And you need to contact them as soon as they are late the first time.  Don't wait 4 weeks.  

Wasting time and money on trying to figure out if they are breaking other laws than the one they are currently breaking is really a waste of time.

Unless they changed the rules since I took the GED, your SD (and her friend) aren't going to be able to take the GED until their class has actually completed high school.   Which means they don't graduate early.  

At what point can he stop paying?  If she drops out of school and is 18 years old, he can go to court to have the payments stopped.  Then it is up to the judge.

That depends on the wording in the court order.  My divorce was in NJ.  

From the wording in my court order, I assume that child support would stop if they don't attend college as the only time off it addresses is the summer break.  A lawyer would be better able to advise you on your court order, though.
