This topic is definitely interesting to me since I've been wanting to move out of Texas since my divorce. I have even stricter restrictions b/c by living in west TX, I am far from any other city and would be far from my kids' dad if I was to move anywhere.

I want to start the court proceedings to leave. I'm not even looking to leave the state, just to another city where I might find more services for my son. A move would do so much for me, personally. I am very very very afraid of facing my ex in court. He has much more money than I do and would try to take the kids from me just out of anger. I'm sure that I could get people to say in court that the kids are better with me.

Any ideas? I like the mention of advocacy groups. Do you have more information?
