Get yourself a lawyer! Did you have any visitation orders in place? If not you will now have a fight on your hands to get them back.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

You should not have let him take them in the first place. This is where it gets dicey. When the kids are from one state and go to another where one parent lives without a custody agreement, the police are going to look the other way unless you have a court order. He can also at this time file for custody where he lives and then you have to go there to get the custody set. And he can get it. Each state has its own laws on custody and it will be a mess to file in both LA and TX to get custody because one state is not going to go by another's state's mandates. You can try to go get them...but you should check into a lawyer in Texas.

Michelle is right about getting an attorney. I am in a similar situation but both the father and I reside in the same state. You should try and get some legal advice. Hope all is well for you
