Valeria was at a party at her friends' house when she met the man she would end up having a chance relationship with. The case resulted in the birth of a girl who is now 9 years old. The problem is that the man with whom Valeria got involved had a twin brother with whom she shares the same genetic code and neither of them assumes being the father of the child.
The case was tried in the High Court of Cachoeira Alta, in the state of Goiás. "One of the brethren, in bad faith, seeks to hide paternity," the judge said in a court order quoted by Globo, who also notes that both brothers have a history for taking advantage of their similarities for their own benefit.
When Valéria asked for a paternity test to determine the identity of the daughter's father, the tests were conclusive in 99.9%, but the first man undergoing tests insisted that he was not the father of the child and that he was not at the party, pointing the finger to his twin brother.
The twin brother also underwent a compulsive DNA test. The result? Exactly the same: 99.9%.
