Can military women with joint custody move when they are ordered to or do they have to have permission from the father in Texas?

The court takes a somewhat different view of military personnel than it does civilians. If the person is the primary custodian (meaning the children reside with them the majority of the time) the consent of the other parent is not required when they are transferred. The obvious reason the court sanctions this action is the parent has no control over the situation and must literally "follow orders." This does not prevent the other parent from petitioning the court for full custody or requesting to be appointed the primary custodial parent.

Of course. Same general custody rules apply for a parent if in the military or not.

If your father have visitation right or share custody she will need his permission.

No. If the father does not have any legal rights, then his permission is not required.

No. You were not ordered to give of your custody rights, just primary residency was transferred to the father. You still have your parental rights, the same as a father, and responsibility to pay child support, whether the father wants it or not.
