It is totally dependent upon the case load of the presiding judge.

How long it can take for paternity DNA results to come back depends on the method of testing chosen and how soon after release you can collect the results. With legal and personal paternity testing, the results are typically available within 2 working days.

Yes. The court can order you to take a paternity test.

If the father is listed as the father on the baby's birth certificate, a court will be reluctant to order him to take a paternity test. If he is not listed as the father on the birth certificate, you can file a lawsuit to order him to prove (or disprove) his paternity through a paternity test.

No, but you will have to take your laptop out of the case when you go through security.

You can file a motion to bring you case to court. In the court hearing, the judge can rule for the father to have a paternity test done. Some courts will pay for the testing and have the father repay the court for the costs. DNA Diagnostics Center is a well known place that does paternity testing. Their results are credible in court.

A man can be ordered by the court to take a DNA paternity test. The court is the only entity that can force someone to take a test.

You can pop into a DNA clinic and have the testing done for about $100. While the results might satisfy your curiosity, they will not be admissible in court. Paternity testing must be court-ordered and performed under the required guidelines to be valid. If you need to prove paternity for a court case, let the court order it and take care of it.

Generally, Yes. You can be forced. If you are denying paternity, and the mother is claiming that you are the father, the proper legal way to resolve the issue is to take a paternity test. You can be forced to do this. Refusing to take the test looks bad, as if you knew for certain that you were not the father you'd be quite willing to take the test - it wouldn't matter to you.

If you are a legal guardian of the child then you can take the child and go get a paternity test yourself.
