This question is a complicated one in that the laws of paternity do not necessarily establish the biological father as the father for child support purposes but rather look to the circumstances surrounding the case. Your husband is what is known as a presumed father, which is essentially a man that was married to the mother when the child was born, legally agreed to be the father of his wife's child (by signing the birth certificate, and has acted and behaved as the child's father. You cannot receive child support from both the presumed father (if he is still your husband) and the biological father (assuming he admits to being the father) and a court would likely determine your husband to be the father for purposes of child support.

Do they take child support based on the DNA results?

If you are married the husband is automatically considered the father so then no DNA is required but if not married the father have to provide DNA test in court in order to prove paternity and he can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. Just signing the birth certificate will not hold up in court since the birth certificate does not require DNA testing. This is to prevent the wrong man paying child support. Only the biological parents pays for their child.
