    Is my dad taking away from my mom's house legal?

    thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    It sounds like you are not sure what’s going on with custody issues between your mother and father.
    We understand that sometimes things can get confusing with legal terms and conditions.
    It’s good of you to reach out for help.

    That being said we are not legal experts and therefore can comment on legally what is going on.
    You stated that you wanted to go and live with your father and that appears to be what is set to happen.
    As to whether or not you should say something to your mother about the plan that’s a decision you will have to make.

    It’s good of you to want to be considerate to your mother and not just leave without her knowing.
    You might consider communicating with you father about any misgivings you have about the arrangement. Hopefully he will be able to give you an answer that’s makes it easier for you to understand.

    You are welcome to contact 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or visit (live chat) to speak more on the subject.

    We hope that the situation becomes clearer for you and you feel at ease about the move.

    Take care,

    Is my dad taking away from my mom's house legal?

    Alright so this sounds bad, but it is not what it appears. My dad recently gained custody over me by my request. I'm supposed to move to my dad's over the summer in august, and now it is august, so the time has finally come. However, it seems my mom is not going to let it happen. I'm not sure what happened exactly since legally I'm not supposed to know due to Washington law. My dad has decided to come over to my house, take me to his house (with my permission of course), and then come back to my mom's house later to get my stuff. It is his time of the summer technically, and he says it is legal (or at least, his lawyer said so) but I'm not convinced. Is this technically legal? Is there any way I can tell my mom appropriate that this is happening, instead of just packing my stuff and just leaving? Do I have to go like this, or is there any other way? I have no idea what to do, and it seems like no one else on the internet has this problem but me.
