Child support problems continue for Colonial Heights man

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Dwayne Parson hoped the battle had been won, but now a Colonial Heights father says he's still having financial problems over a child that isn't biologically his!

You may remember Dwayne Parson. He was in and out of court, even jail, battling payments on the child. He used DNA to prove he was not the father.

But, his struggle to get out from underneath the problem continues. Like many couples, Dwayne Parson and his fiance have been dreaming of a wedding and a house to call their own. Debts from those child support payments keep getting in the way.  

"We're trying to buy a house and move forward," said his fiance, Natonya Green. "Instead of renting and apartments and things. We can't do that."

Dwayne has been to court about the back payments. A judge believed the medical proof Dwayne presented that the child wasn't his. But, because Dwayne signed the birth certificate, he still has some legal responsibilities in Virginia.

The judge tried to help out, saying Dwayne only has to pay one dollar a month on the money he owes. But, those thousands of unpaid dollars are still affecting his credit.

"They don't really care you know, how it happened," said Green. "What the outcome was, it shows on your credit report that this is the debt you owe and it looks like. You're just not paying your debts so that nobody wants to lend to you."

"I think they're just looking for a dollar from somebody," said Parson. "And I'm here to fight to the end, you know what I'm saying?"

Dwayne said he has gotten legal help and some of the debt has been removed. But, he's still hoping to get the whole debt wiped clean so he can spend money on his own family.

"I got the man upstairs watching out for me," said Parson.
