Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.There absolutely is something you can do. You can't get a protective order (restraining order) against her, but you can seek to modify the visitation order to place restrictions to prevent or limit the girlfriend from being around your daughter, especially if she is there overnight.While I would recommend speaking to a lawyer about this and letting them handle it, the Texas Law Help website has the forms and instructions if you wish to look into filing yourself.In the meantime, you may wish to restrict visitation if the father is not going to be cooperative. I'm not suggesting outright withholding visitation -offer for him to come to your house for visitation, for example, or that you'll allow your daughter to have visitation time with him out of the house alone with him, such as at a movie theater or theme park.While arguably he could try to get you on contempt charges if you deny visitation, I think you have a good counter argument that given the criminal charges, the violence, and the risk to your daughter, you were just looking out for her because dad won't stop bringing her around.
