Texas may have jurisdiction over your case. The UCCJEA governs this matter. Typically jurisdiction on a modification like yours will follow the child. How long has the child been living in Texas? Or does the child live in the new state with Respondent.
If the child is with you, you can go ahead and 'domesticate' the AZ Order in Harris County now and then serve Respondent. If the child is with Respondent, then you may have to go to the new state, although you could try to file in Texas and see if she fought you on this.
Regardless, these types of UCCJEA cases are complex, so be sure to find a lawyer who is knowledgeable about them. Here is a link that may be helpful to you:

If the child lives in Texas, Texas courts have jurisdiction. You need to hire an attorney and have them file a motion to transfer. Best of luck!
You don't transfer a case as evidence against the other party in the usual sense. You transfer the case so that a different court will handle the hearings -- usually because the child has moved and has lived in the new county for at least 6 months. Confer with an attorney.
