my 14 year old girl is wanted to move out of Australia [ her home } to England London where her brother lives and all relatives for the 2nd semester. her and her father is always fighting, she has been mentally abuse by him for 3-5 years now and now has trouble trusting anything as she doesn't want to get hurt again by him or anyone now. all the schooling and living arrangement will be sorted by i am not sure if i should allow her to go. she doesn't like it here, hates coming home and hating school right now. i am not sure if this will be good for her. she is only 14. i feel she this could be good, go away for a bit while having a good time and with lots of love surrounding her and she always seems happy there.
is there any help or suggestion

I agree with the others.
It's YOUR responsibility to keep your child safe. If you're not willing to leave an abusive relationship then yes, send her to London. She deserves to be loved and it's not happening in your home.

You're obviously not willing to remove her from the abusive situation that she's currently in, so send her to live with her brother and your relatives.

At least she'll feel safe, and loved, rather than betrayed and abused.

If you aren't willing to get her away from the abuse any other way... absolutely let her go live w/ her brother and other family. It is your JOB to protect your child and if she's been abused for 3-5 years all while you are still exposing her to the situation... you are just as much at fault as he is. Let her be safe.
