How Long Does It Take For A Child Support Hearing

by T.D.
(Washington, DC)

I am five months pregnant and the father of my unborn child has made it clear that he does not want to be involved and that he wants a DNA test. He is completely uncooperative and we have not spoken since I found out four months ago. I found out that I can file a claim as early as four months pregnant and I did that. I really want this nightmare to be over as soon as possible so now that I have filed; how long will it be before a hearing is scheduled? Is it possible that the initial hearing will be before I give birth so that DNA can be collected at the hospital? How long does the complete process ending with an order generally take?

It all depends

Hello T.D.,

It all depends and varies on the case load of the county you live in. Especially when paternity is involved.
