How Long does it take to get DNA test back?

My brother has a 5month old baby girl with his girlfriend and he didn't sign the birth certificate because the girl said the baby might not be his so he's getting a dna test done on the 27th and I'm wondering how long it takes to find out because he told the girl to leave cuz she keeps doing drugs,well she took the baby and he can't get the baby untill he has proof she is his, plus the girl is 2 months pregnant again and is addicted to heroin(spelling) so is there anything he can do to get his baby back before the dna test come back since he doesn't have proof? I'm just afraid for my niece since the mother is no where to be found and is doing drugs!

  • It depends on the lab. If he had a private company do it it shouldnt take more then 10 days. if he hasnt gotten them back Id call.

  • Well to be honest she should be reported if those are her behaviors. SHe is seriously endangering the baby. They can take the baby from her. Your brother can let the court know he is waiting for the DNA test because if she is his daughter he wants her back.

  • Call CPS. The test comes back in usually about two weeks.
