A Brazilian judge ruled that two identical twins must both pay maintenance for a nine-year-old girl after a DNA test failed to identify which was her father. Each man will have to pay 30% of Brazil’s monthly minimum salary, around $77 and share the mother’s medical, dental, clothing and school costs. “One of the brothers, in bad faith, seeks to conceal paternity. Such behavior should not be protected by the judiciary,” Judge Felipe Peruca wrote in his ruling. “Since adolescence, the pair used their identical appearance to hide betrayals and win over more women,” the Goiás justice tribunal said in a statement. The mother is unhappy with the result and plans to appeal. “We believe the child has the right to know who the biological father is,” her lawyer said.
