Check with the District Clerk's office in the county where the child lives.

Sometime you can find filings on the internet. Dallas, Denton and Collin County all have online records. I would check in the county in which the child lives, and in the county in which the people live who may have filed.

If there is no online access, then a telephone call to the clerk would suffice.

Good luck.
