I suggest that you talk to your attorney. If you are Harris County residents then you probably need to file where you currently live. Where you were born or where you married is irrelevant. If you are a Harris County resident that Harris County has jurisdiction over your case.
I doubt many lawyers are licensed in Indian and in Texas. You might want to talk to an Indian attorney too about your possible options.See question

If one party is married then there cannot be a common law marriage.
How long you have been together is irrelevant. There is no marriage. You have been a "live in" and are entitled to nothing under Texas law.
Regarding the business, you need to talk to a business attorney.
Good luck.See question
Since now gay people can be legally married then do they also fall under the same rules as hetro-sexual people? If a gay couple has lived together for over 10 years, are they common law married in the site of the law as others are? Also, if so,...
Read the Texas Family Code under common law marriage for the correct elements of a common law marriage.
Once common law married you are as married as anyone else.
7 years, 10 years, etc. is irrelevant.
And yes gays are now divorcing.
You probably need to meet with a family law attorney in person to discuss your situation.See question

It appears you live in Harris County.
You can leave but if he files a lawsuit within 6 months most of the Harris County family law judges will make the child come back. You are free to live wherever you want.
So you can leave and hope that he does not do anything. Once you've lived in CA long enough then file on him there.

An adult adoption is much easier than one for a minor child.
I think the forms might be on www.texaslawhelp.org but I'm not sure. Those are the best FREE Texas forms.
Filing Fee in harris county is around $300.
Or, hire an attorney to help you.

I used a mediator for my divorce who created a marital settlement agreement. My lawyer said it is not valid and offered to create the divorce decree based on the information on the marital settlement agreement. What's the difference. Who writes it...
I don't know who told you that a mediation agreement is submitted to the court and THE COURT writes the decree - wrong!
The mediation agreement if prepared properly is then taken by an attorney and used to write up the Final Decree of Divorce that is then signed by the Judge.
Mediation is very popular in Texas. The attorney you talked to is absolutely correct. The attorney takes the Mediated Settlement Agreement (MSA) and turns it into a legal document (divorce decree) for the judge to sign.
Of course, you can take the MSA and attempt to draft the final decree of divorce. The master form is in the Texas Family Practice Manual which is available in most law libraries.See question

Texas now has "alimony". The Texas legislature opened that door several years ago. And, the Texas legislature keeps "refining" this area of the law every 2 years.
Everything in a divorce is negotiable. A spouse's disability can come into play.See question
