Family Law Attorney
There are a number of attorneys that offer free initial consultations. Call one of their offices and see if you can't speak with one. Make sure they are licensed in Texas. With what you are trying to do, there are a number of considerations the court will take into consideration. That initial consultation can be used to get at least a 'big picture' idea. You may still need to hire an attorney to draft paperwork and push through the case.

She cant make you do anything and legally she isn't permitted to withhold the child from you. If you agree to terminate your rights, you won't owe her anything in child support as long as you address the issue of arrears, if any. This situation is complicated so you should speak to an experienced family law attorney before making a huge decision like this. You have rights so don't sign anything without speaking to someone first.
