List<ProcessDefinition> ProcessDefinitionList = [SELECT TableEnumOrId FROM ProcessDefinition] ;

//above code give you list of all objects for which approval process is defined..

for(ProcessDefinition rec : ProcessDefinitionList)
{
    processDefSet.add(rec.TableEnumOrId) ;
}

if(processDefSet.contains('my custom object is there')) {
    //do whaterver you want to do.
}



--------------
List<ProcessDefinition> ProcessDefinitionList = [SELECT TableEnumOrId FROM ProcessDefinition WHERE TableEnumOrId ='MyCustomObj__c'] ;

if(ProcessDefinitionList.size > 0) {
  // It mean approval process is there related to your object.
}

You can make a query on ProcessInstance objct .
If your MyCustom__c object Id is availabel in TargetObjectId it means there is a approvale process related to your custom object.

Please see detail document here.
