My husband and I took a "break" and when we got back

My husband and I took a "break" and when we got back together I was already pregnant with someone else's kid. How much interference will we have from the biological father of my husband signs the birth certificate and wants this baby born into marriage? I've filed for a protective order against the biological dad twice for domestic violence, harrassment and another charge im not comfortable randomly putting online. I feel hopeless because he's law enforcement and "knows" the system. I've heard and asked lawyers here in texas and have gotten many conflicting answers and Im driving myself crazy with what to do.

I have a parenting plan, and my child's father hasn't taken

I have a parenting plan, and my child's father hasn't taken her for his scheduled visits, or contacted her or myself in at least 60 days. I'm just wondering what I can do to avoid future legal issues with him if he decides he wants to start taking her again. He's remarried with 2 other children now, and lives with 5 other adults in one home. I'd like to be able to have his rights removed from him on taking our daughter if that's possible. Also, I know if he's behind on support I claim her on his years for taxes, but I'd like to know if I can have that changed if he still keeps his parenting rights.
