Belo Horizonte – The Public Defender’s Office of Minas Gerais (DPMG) has open enrollment for the 2022 campaign entitled Right to a Father. The initiative helps in the identity of children when seeking to exercise the right to paternity.

Interested parties have until September 30 to apply. The event will take place on October 7th. In addition to the headquarters, in the capital Belo Horizonte, another 61 units in the interior of the state will participate in the mobilization, which will take place simultaneously and in person since the covid-19 pandemic. The number of units participating is a record.

This will be the 10th edition at the state level of the joint effort to recognize paternity/maternity, guaranteed by the Child and Adolescent Statute (ECA). Since the first edition, in 2011, the task force has already carried out more than 60 thousand consultations and about ten thousand DNA tests. On average, 70% of them test positive.

To participate in this edition of the right to a father task force, the interested party must register at each participating unit. The applicant must prove the absence of the father’s or mother’s name on the birth certificate. The entire service is free and includes DNA tests and spontaneous recognition of paternity and maternity.

Data from the National Council of Justice (CNJ) indicate that 5.5 million Brazilian children do not have their father’s name on their birth certificates. In Minas Gerais, according to the National Association of Registrars of Natural Persons (Arpen-Brasil), more than seven thousand babies born in 2021 do not have the father’s name on the certificate.

Documentation

Those interested in participating in the task force must forward the necessary documentation directly to the DPMG unit in their city, through digital channels or in person, as made available by each unit. You must present:

– birth certificate of the person who wants to be recognized (without the name of the father or mother)

– proof of residence

– personal document of the legal representative (in the case of a minor applicant)

– name, telephone number and/or address of the alleged father
