Shocking Confession

From her studies, she knew that she had a case. There were laws in place to help women like her. She grabbed her phone and called a lawyer.

The courtroom was left astounded by what the twins confessed. An audible gasp echoed through the room. Their confession reached news broadcasts all over the nation. Mia’s stomach churned.

Mia Feliz was 25 years old when she first found out she was pregnant with twins. As a single woman who was working her way through college, she didn’t know who to turn to.

She was alone and scared and had no idea what to do. She was in her third year of college, studying for a law degree. A degree that would eventually help her to enact her revenge.

Denying Everything

They only went on a couple of dates together when Mia quickly realized they weren’t meant for each other. His name was Fernando and he was the father of her child. But now, she wished she never met him.

When she told Fernando about their pregnancy, it went horribly wrong. He completely denied any responsibility and claimed the children were his. Mia saw red.

Angry And Confused

She was livid and confused. How could someone be so cruel? Mia had no family to whom she could turn. They all lived in Brazil. She had moved to California to pursue her education alone. She was completely by herself.

But she knew she couldn’t let Fernando get away with this.

New Strategy

She hounded him. There was no way Mia would let him deny his own children and allow her to foot all the bills that were coming down the line.

When she saw him again on the street, she confronted him. But this time it was worse than before. Now he acted like he didn’t even know her. This wasn’t working. Mia knew she had to do more.

Mia stormed off, steaming with anger. Her confrontations weren’t working. She needed help – legal help. From her studies, she knew that she had a case.

There were laws in place to help women like her. She grabbed her textbooks and researched exactly what action she should take. Then, she called a lawyer.

Mia was a college student so she couldn’t afford a lawyer but what she could afford and had the means to find was something close. All she had to do was explain her situation to her professor who pointed her towards a pro bono lawyer.

A pro bono lawyer is basically a lawyer who works for free but has all the qualifications needed to do the job. And Mia was about to find out he did it well.

DNA Test

It wasn’t long before she ended up in court but no one could have imagined how things would inevitably turn out.

The court immediately issued Fernando to take a DNA test. But when the results came back, the results confused everyone at hand. The DNA matched two people. Two men were confirmed to be the father.

Twins

Science

When Mia saw the two men enter the courtroom, she fell back. She was seeing double. There were two Fernando’s. They looked incredibly identical.

It soon became obvious that they were identical twins. Fernando never mentioned that he had a twin. Suddenly, a sickening feeling came over her.

Bad To Worse

Mia was asked to identify the twin she thought was the father. She couldn’t identify him by his appearance but told the court he introduced himself as Fernando.

Fernando denied the charge and accused his twin brother, Fabricio, of identity theft. Both of the men fought desperately to shirk responsibility for the babies by blaming each other. Then it went from bad to worse.

Same DNA

Because they were identical twins, they shared the exact same DNA. There was no test available that could scientifically prove which twin was lying. It was impossible to tell which twin was the biological father.

Mia couldn’t believe what was happening. But the worst was yet to come.

Horrid Discovery

As the trial unfolded, more and more information came out about the two reprehensible twins. And the sick reality of what really happened made Mia’s stomach churn.

The courtroom was left astounded as an audible gasp echoed through the room from those engaged in the case. It hit news broadcasts all over the nation. The discovery?

Ruling

Judge Filipe Luís Peruca ordered that both twins provide financial support to Mia by giving her a third of their paycheck monthly. He stated, “One of the brothers, in bad faith, seeks to conceal fatherhood.

“Such behavior, of course, should not receive a guarantee from the judiciary which, on the contrary, must repress clumsy behavior, especially in the case in which the defendants seek to benefit from their own clumsiness.” There was more about what the twins were hiding.

Serial Daters

It was discovered that the twins often used their likeness to impersonate each other. Their goal? to date as many women as they could.

A statement from the court said, “Since adolescence, the pair used their identical appearance to hide betrayals and win over more women”. But for Mia, it was a lucky escape.

Lucky Escape

“It’s a very sad attitude, there was no need for this. They know the truth but took advantage of the similarity to escape responsibility,” Mia said.

However, even though she grieves for her children to be kept in the dark about who his father is, she also feels incredibly lucky to be able to detach completely from such a person and keep their lives relatively separate. That’s a person she and her family would be far better without.
