    Answered . Unfortunately you have no choice but to retain an attorney. You have not provided a lot of facts here. Are you both in Texas? Same county? Under joint custody you will most likely have to mediate before you can go to court. Take you divorce papers in to a lawyer for a consultation. Often these matters are solved in mediation, as far as pro bono services go lawyers do not take custody cases as part of most pro bono r legal aid programs.
