my mac, windows pc and external hard drive got taken for forensic copy.

2. The external hard drive is 3tb and encrypted with veracrypt, password has 39 digits. how long will they take if possible?
all vercrypt encryption is sha256

My best advice (more than one!)

1. Use the Veracrypt forums. Here's an example save:
https://sourceforge.net/p/veracrypt/discussion/technical/thread/869958770c/

2. Never encrypt without having a good unencrypted backup copy.
Those that disagree usually have not "lost it all."

3. Notable recovery company to ask: Drivesavers.com.

If they have a decent forensics group, the work is done by the next day.
