What is the name of your state? Texas

I do not fully understand what habeas corpus is. Do you? I thought that it was used in an instance where one party is in contempt basically for not bringing the child, for example, for the extended summer visit. If I am following the papers for my extended summer visit, how is it that the other party filed for a writ of habeas corpus for me to return the child?
