Frist thank u so much for ur reply. I live in scotland and when u r 16u dont need a parents concent to move where u like apart from going to another country. My ex husband has been in her life since the age of 6. So she treats him like a father. Her really did not have anything to do with her untill the age 12 thats when he decided he would like to get to know her needless to say it didnt work. My ex her ex step dad is a good man and I know that she's in save hands. But it hurts me that she would rather stay with him an me. He cheated on 3 weeks after my mum died I give a chance to make our marriage work but he didn't want to. I left my home that I lived in for 19 years so things would be better for me and my daughter
I wont her to be happy and if that means been with me I have accept it . But god knows its hard I don't go out and I don't have any friends I feel so down alone . Thank you much appreciated.

You best check the laws in your state regarding this. Usually step parents do not have any legal say on anything regarding the children. I do not care how much they care about each other and her wanting to move in with him. THat is just not kosher. Where is her own bio father in all this and what does he say? Why are you not telling her that this can not happen? You are her mother.
