In the event that the father opposes the claim, he must pay for and carry out the DNA test which includes him as the supposed father, the mother and the son. The cost of this analysis in Peru is around 1,110 soles, approximately.

If the test comes out positive, the judge will make a judicial declaration of paternity and will summon a second hearing to establish child support.
