Washington, DC asked in Family Law for Nebraska

Q: How long does DNA test results take to come back in court ordered paternity?

Follow up to other question - friend got the court order to do genetic testing for twins that a woman claims are his but she doesn't have custody. The kids are in foster care and state has filed to terminate her rights. He is currently in jail and pending revocation of probation. How long do test results take to come back in Neb for court ordered paternity testing? Also - if he ends up going back to jail could they file to terminate his rights IF he is the bio father? Since they've already been in foster care about 17 months and the mother will likely have her rights terminated? Or would he get 15 months?

A: Paternity tests result speeds depend on the lab. You can generally get rush results within a few days. Normally you would expect results from most labs within a few weeks.
