I live in texas and I have a meeting with lawer this friday

I live in texas and I have a meeting with lawer this friday to retain and consult. how ever I was curious to have a second opinion. This is a run down on current situation. (1) I have screen shots of mother admiting to substance abuse thru social media both in messages and in form of pictures as well as 5yrs we were together and did not condone this at all while with her. as welll as pics of sippy cups of soured juice and milk when i would get the kids according to the custody order thru mediation. (2) Is her boyfriend/husband idk what they are legaly but he has a (felony assault and family violence record involving his ex by means of strangulation that he is still on probation for). In his trial prior to conviction judge made him test for drugs in which he failed for meth.My lawer is going to approach this with a hair folicle and finger nail test on all parties, and include a restraining order against said boyfriend/husbband.If they are married what happens to my kids if judge grants restraining order. Will they stay with mother or will i get a temporary custody order. I know they will fail hair folicle but what if they refuse what then?
