Retain family law counsel. Whatever custody results, if the mother has a history of moving you need to get court orders made for your child. Texas presumptively appoints parents as joint managing conservators with one parent designating primary residence. The residence can be restricted to a geographical area such as Texas or Harris and Tarrant County. Orders will be made for visitation, support and medical support. Paternity will be established. Texas has no "full" custody. If the mother has not been seen in months, you have some good evidence to be the primary residence. Maybe an agreement can be made. Start with getting a lawyer. The case will be filed in the county of residence where the child has last resided for six months or more. If there are no court orders now nothing prevents you from keeping the child unless that is not in her best interests. If there is a court order, you are filing to modify the court order and you must have a ground. Start with talking to family law counsel and if possible to the other parent.
