They say at 14 she has the legal right to decide where she lives

Thanks for confirming. At 14 she can express her wishes and feelings but you have the right to apply to court for a child arrangement order (for residence) which will reflect the arrangements - basically stating that your daughter is to live with you.

This is only for you to decide, but if you believe that the best and safest place for her to be is with you and that being with grandmother is not in her best interests you may need to proceed with a court application.
