  1. What difference does the timing make? If a Judge issues a court order, you will have to comply according to the Judge's direction as to time, place, & manner of drug test. If you have an attorney, ask your attorney. If you don't have an attorney, you would be well advised to get one.

  2. I have seen Collin County judges order hair follicle tests on the spot. I recommend that you consult a family law attorney who practices in Collin County on a regular basis. Collin County often does things different from surrounding counties. Good luck!
