Get a lawyer. This guy is full of it. Texas is not usually a 50/50 state for possession of a child. If the child is young and dad is an abusive drunk, it will NOT happen. His lawyer knows better than to draw up a decree/order providing for no visitation and no child support. That dog won't hunt. The obligations are independent from each other. A Texas judge will not let him off the child support obligation. GET to a LAWYER ASAP
I am not intending this to be legal advice, because I don't know the particulars of your situation. Call me if you would like to discuss this or other isues.
