My son's mother and I were never married or together. The only order we have is for child support and that was filed in the county he lives (3 hours away). The possession and access order states : the Court holds the issue of visitation in Abeyance and Reserves this issue for a final determination by the court at a future date.
The child support order is a custody order, you just don't have visitation.

You'll need to start in the county where the existing order (child support) was made. If the child has lived in the new county six months or longer you can file a transfer.
Make sure to request the transfer at the correct time relative to your other pleadings. You might want a lawyer.
This answer DOES NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based on the limited information provided and is not intended to be conclusive advice. There are likely other factors that might influence or change the advice after a more lengthy consultation.
Take the support order to family law counsel to review. It is quite unusual that you could have a support order without a child custody order with both parties in the State of Texas. Child support normally is not an order separate from child custody unless there is an interstate party or lack of jurisdiction over one of the issues. A petition to transfer and petition to modify or petition in suit affecting parent-child relationship is normally filed in the court that made the order.
