How does it take for a hair follicle test to come back?

Customer Question
How long does it...

How long does it take for a hair follicle test to come back?

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Texas. Harris County

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No. Everyone wants too much money and I can’t afford a $175 hourly rate.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have not been charged with anything criminally. No prior cps convictions. And I have two other children that the case does not involve
