Provided there are not any court orders preventing the removal of the child from Texas, you have the right to live with your child where ever you want. Jurisdiction for any divorce or custody battle will remain in Texas for 6 months after you move. Thereafter, jursidiction over the marriage and child will be in the state where you have established your residence.
