I want to file for custody In the state of Texas. I would like to know how long I would have to live there to file? The father dose not have any legal custody! I just need to leave the state of CA, for the safey of me and my one year old!

Assuming that Texas has adopted the provisions of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA),
six months is the likely answer.

You need to live in Texas for 6 months, and you must be a resident of the county you wish to file in for 90 days prior. Hope that helps!
