My 16 year old daughter has moved in with her Dad and girlfriend.Its been a year of repairing financially and emotionally myself and my two kids stability.He is a manipulative and selfish person and thinks of this as a win not as what is best for my daughter. I want to start Mediation but I am afraid I will loose my daughter for good....Any suggestions appreciated....

Actually I should mention that their household has an on going investigation from Child protective services and there other children in the there are concerns not just hurt feelings.....

She's 16. You really can't do much about it unless she is being abused. It is only your opinion that he is manipulative and selfish and it isn't in her best interests. Chances are, he thinks the same about you, so it is a he says, she says situation. Right now, the best thing you can do is have a positive quality relationship with her with the time you DO have.
