Texas man paid child support for 13 years, proves child was not his
Houston resident Willie Carson has finally been able to release himself from parental responsibility and child support after 13 years, now that Texas courts allow DNA testing as admissible evidence.
Texas law has recently accepted DNA evidence in court to terminate parental rights, a newly approved amendment to the system. Carson does not have to continue to pay child support going forward, but Texas regulations stipulate that, even after parental rights are terminated, that does not release the party from paying former debts. This means Carson will have to still pay back child support to the tune of $21,000 for a child that is not biologically his. There is currently no system in place to compensate a party in Texas who was erroneously ordered to pay child support.
