I have a 13 year old SD who my husband has joint custody of with her maternal grandmother. She has spent the summer at our house as well as every other weekend & every school break with us for the last 5-6 years. She has recently said that she wishes to stay with us & only visit the grandmother. My husband has mentioned this to the grandmother, but she is not in agreement with her living with us. My husband has filed for full custody of his daughter, but it's not looking good because of a jurisdictional issue. Is there anyway my SD can make the decision without us having to go to court? I should also mention that my step-daughter has some developmental delays. Does that factor in with what she wants? Ideas, please.
