Hi there,My daughter is 13 years old and intellectually

Customer Question

Hi there,

My daughter is 13 years old and intellectually i'd say shes a lot older, she lives with both myself and my ex husband on a shared care capacity (although the family court only ordered 2 evenings a week visitation for my ex husband) the children wanted to see there dad more but this was 13 years ago, my daughter has now decided just recently that she wants to come and live with me permanently as her home life over at her dads has become increasingly uncomfortable with arguments and belittling of my daughter going on everytime shes over there - shes just returned from a weeks holiday with them and was in tears when i picked her up as they told her she'd ruined there holiday by being moody and unhappy, i know this is only her side to the story but shes constantly upset when returning from their house and wondered where i stood legally and my daughter for that matter and how i go about allowing her to live here legally and permanently
