My 14 year old daughter wants to go live with her grandmother.

I am a single mom raising my daughter alone. She doesn't have a relationship with her father. She has always had a close relationship with her dad's mom. She just got back recently from spending 2 1/2 weeks with her and came back and told me she wanted to go live with her grandmother. She said she wants a new start and she doesn't like the people at her school. It broke my heart. We have had our ups and downs as any mother and daughter do at this age but I have always provided and been there for her. She has always hated leaving her grandmother's house even when she was little. I do ride her about her grades and doing the right thing but I don't want her to ever head down the wrong path. I am heartbroken and don't know what I should do.

Yes I have physical custody and her father has visitations but she don't see him and he doesn't put out the effort. She has always been close with her grandmother. She always makes everything fun and energetic. She doesn't speak to her son (my daughter's father). I think she makes my daughter feel sorry for her because she lives alone and goes on and on how much she loves my daughter there and misses her. That is fine but I think it is almost a guilt trip on my daughter.

You tell her that she is your daughter and while she is welcome to visit her grandma when school is not in session... she lives w/ YOU. She is 14. It's not her decision to make.

Do you have court orders for custody?
