    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today.

    Sounds like you have been wanting to move in with your dad but you have been living with your dad. We are not legal experts, but since you see your dad on the weekends he might have some partial custody rights over you. If you haven't already, you might ask him if you can stay with him regularly. He could already might be able to help, or he could go to court or talk to your mom to try and advocate for you living with him. Here at NRS, we have a conference call service if you ever need help having a mediated call with one of your parents to go over this difficult issue and how you have been feeling don't hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
