Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-What are the exact terms of the current order in place?
-When was the order made?
-Is it a final order?
Thank you. In the circumstances I would suggest that you make an urgent application to court under Form C100 together with a £215 court fee to your local family court to vary the order as at this time there is no provision for her to live with you. The court can make a decision regarding the matter that is in your daughter's best interests and will take into account her views, but due to her age her views will not take precdence. For your information the Court will take into consideration the following when making a decision regarding the application:
1.The wishes and feelings of the child concerned2. The child’s physical, emotional and educational needs3. The likely effect on the child if circumstances changed as a result of the courts decision4. The child’s age, sex, backgrounds and any other characteristics which will be relevant to the court’s decision5. Any harm the child has suffered or may be at risk of suffering6. Capability of the child’s parents (or any other person the courts find relevant) at meeting the child’s needs7. The powers available to the court in the given proceedings
