I have alot of concerns for my children but then again what mom doesn't right? Well my main concern is HOW DO I GO ABOUT GETTING CUSTODY for my daughter? Her dad hasn't been in her life in over 5 years and then all of a sudden he decided to come back...great right? Nope!! Now he thinks he can run things...such as when he can come pick her up, and bring her back, whether or not he has to pay child support ect....please MOMs help me! He is a 3 time felon that drinks and does others as well, I'm so scared of him and what he might do! I LIVE IN TEXAS so any advise would help if you know about my state!

Get a lawyer and take him to court. Push for supervised visitation. You may have to get a PPO if he is that dangerous. For now since it's been 5 years, and until you go to court, I wouldn't let him see your kids. Just because of the danger you feel. You will also have to go to friend of the court (I think that's national?) to get child support. Don't let him dictate!
