The father of my children is trying to move to Oklahoma because it is a “father Favoritism state than Texas.” What exactly would you need to get primary custody of your child?

You need to file and get an order in place and work on not allowing the kids to live there. If his name is on birth certificate and there are no orders, then he has rights to take them unless you get an order. 888-343-4529.
Private adoption is still allowed but is very strictly regulated to prevent intermediary placement by any person who is not the parent of the child or who is a licensed child adoption agency. So if the Mother approaches you directly and asks you to adopt her child, without a third party acting as...Read more »
She also blocked me on all social media. I can’t contact her, or my child. She had also moved to a new house within a week of me telling her this, and I don’t know what the address is. How can I find it for her to be served with the papers?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The first question I have is how old is you child? If he/she is old enough to go to school, you can likely have her served at school during pickup and drop off. If child is not in school, you may want to consider employing a private...Read more »
Your best option is to hire an attorney. You need to file a suit affecting the parent child relationship (SAPCR) and have father served. If you cannot locate him there are other methods for getting him served. As far as "full custody", Texas really does not have such a thing. There is joint...Read more »

IT... Read more »
It means use Non Stop only. I don't think any court would say Regional carriers of major airlines couldn't be used, although you're right, that standard boilerplate language is arguably ambiguous. Safest bet would be to get the other parent to sign an agreement and you file it or, better yet, do an...Read more »
Someone called CPS pretending to be ME and made false Accusations stating that my daughter was sexually abused....my question is how likely is it that an attorney can Subpoena the recorded phone call made to CPS and track who made the call?
Very unlikely. CPS records, specially the records of the initial call to report, are extremely confidential. Also, for a subpoena to be even available, there has to be an open case pending (note this is different than a CPS investigation which is not an open legal case).
And we had a final order signed by a judge..after she passed my sister in law took them into her home because she said that CPS said that she had custoday if them,that's what she told us so we listened as to not making anything worse,,just recently we found out that we actually have legal custody...
