Hi I'm writing here in hopes I can get any sort of advice as I am very hurt my daughter has turned her back on me after 15 years. My daughter & I have been very close, but she started looking for her dad once I started following through with rules as she had been getting into trouble for the last couple years & I would tend to give in easily to her. Her dad never helped me discipline her as I reached out to him many times but he was always too busy. Now she went to spend a month with him after many years and he is sending me messages that he is going to take her away from me and had an attorney because she says I'm verbally abusive with her and that I'm always mad at her which is not true. My ex is in arrears of 20,000 dollars and I've even taken off 10 grand to help him out and he is now on a mission to take her away from me. We all know he is doing it for child support reason and my daughter is doing this because she does not like rules but I'm still so heart broken and afraid I am going to lose her. Please any advice would be welcome.

What are your custody orders? If you have none, she can live with whomever she chooses.
If you do have orders, what is the age of choice in your area? She may be old enough to choose residence
It may be something you have to live with. She has the right to a relationship with both parents.
