Interstate divorce advice

Hello all I have an unresponsive lawyer and am looking to see if anyone had experience with this topic. I recently left my job and home with my husband who is a perminant resident ( thanks to our marriage ) due to abuse ( unreported to the police ). We have been in Austin for less than 2 years and I filed for divorce. As I fleed to an other state to be with family, where I was born and raised. He is contesting that he needs to have his daughter back and me near by. I have no place to stay no family no real friends for support no job now as I left our home from fear. He does have rights too see his child and I do not want to keep her from him

Child was taken by wife and has been hiding

My child was taken away and hidden for a year and a half by my wife. I filed for divorce and hired a lawyer in Wisconsin (my home until three weeks ago), but since learning WI doesn't have jurisdiction, I was advised to go to Texas, where my wife fled. She is in Houston and I am currently residing in Austin.
I am a disabled veteran of the Gulf war. I am unfortunately on a strict budget.
 
            For about a month prior to 10/27/09, I had been inquiring about an attorney for a divorce from my wife. Due to her charges in the past: child abuse, child neglect, criminal trespass, threat on life, theft and prostitution, I believe she planned, along with her mother, to leave without me knowing where she was, in order to keep me from gaining any type of custody of our child
