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.

My case is very complicated. I had my daughter, March 2011.

Hi, My case is very complicated. I had my daughter, March 2011. The biological father was not present so he was not on the birth Certificate. Later on, he and I went to court to ensure he stood away so I went for full custody. He came back and said he was the father and the judge granted him to be on the Birth Certificate and had her last name changed. Since then he has not been in her life, she does not know who this person is, and has not financially supported her. I want to go back to court to get full custody of her and change her name back to mine. If possible have someone else legally adopt my daughter. A man who she has known all her life and calls dad.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New York BronxJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I have notJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I think that is all. Thank you!
