I about to go to trial in Texas for a divorce and custody

I about to go to trial in Texas for a divorce and custody modification. I initially lost Primary conservatorsh due to my extensive criminal background, drug abuse, and CPS cases. I found a phychiatrist who specializes in mental illness and substance abuse treatment about 2 1/2 years ago. Since she correctly diagnosed me, all that negative behavior stopped. I'm about to go to trial for custody of my 8 y/o daughter. My ex alleged that I was still abusing opiates, and thats why he denies my court ordeewd, because Im impaired when I come to get visitation . The judge ordered hair follicle drug test on both of us. I passed, he failed for marijuana. Then he admitted that he smokes 2-3 times a week. My psychiatrist is coming to testify on my behalf. Do you think going the route of CURRENT, FREQUENT drug use of the custodial parent will overshadow my criminal and psych? I've been clean over 2 years, wirh actual monthly test results to confirm my sobriety?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I have one,JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That we're also alleging domestic violence and emotional abuse of my daufhter.
