Husband is charged with injury to a child & on probation when he actually molested my daughter, his step daughter 3 years ago.

Asked 6 months ago - Plano, TX

He and I have a son together who is 9 and he lives with him, he has violated his probation by being around his victim and drinking alcohol. I want a divorce and I want to get custody of my son.
What are my chances and what are my first steps? We are still married but live in two cities 4 hours apart. I have just completed an Intensive outpatient program for addiction and am now sober and able to work and take care of him. I also attend therapy and other care to continue my sobriety.
