  • I want to live with my biological father

    I am only 13 years old and I am about to become a freshman in highschool. most recently in the last year or two I have been having difficulties with my mother and her new fiance. They have both emotionally manipulated me and i wish to live with my biological father, but i do not know how to address it. i do not really want to talk about it with my mother because if we were to go to court over full custody with my real father, she would probably win since she is more financially stable (but i know nothing about the law so im not sure). my mom does not know, but she and her fiance are the reason why i am going through such a hard time mentally. I could literally list the amount of times that they have done something that had caused me to break down. how can i move back in with my dad without causing trouble with my mom? my dad already has custody over me for 55 days a year but i would actually like to live with him.

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out! It sounds like your are very unhappy living with your mom and that you prefer to stay with your dad more long-term.
    We are not legal experts, and things can get a little complicated depending on custody arrangements. Perhaps you could talk to your dad about getting full legal custody through the courts. We do offer conference calling here if you would like help starting a conversation about all of this with either of your parents. Call us anytime at 1-800-786-2929 to do that!

    We are here by chat and phone 24/7. Call us at 1-800-786-2929, or live chat through the button at the top of this site.

    It shows tremendous strength to reach out and we are here to support you through this very difficult time.
