Transferring full custody

Long story so I'll cut to the point. All started in the state of Oklahoma. In 2003, I got myself into some trouble. I turned full custody over to the father--child support was never changed. Regardless if he ever paid his part anyways. He only stayed with him 2 months until I had my own place again. I made sure they all had food. In 2004, my son and I moved to Texas. I had papers drawn up for joint custody & no child support from either parent; I was told if both parents agreed it was ok--judge never signed. We only stayed inTexas 6 months. But have recently moved back to Texas again permanently. My son's father still has full custody of him ON PAPER. He was just sentenced to two years in prison. So I want to know how do I get full custody back since we live in 2 different states? And can I get back child support from 2003 up until the time he went to jail??? Please help.
