My 16 year daughter just told me she doesn't want to live with me anymore. I have done everything I possibily can for my children. My Ex husband has been in and out of their lives since 2001. He has not paid child support nor provided any medical support or any other support. He is currently 51,000 in arrears now he wants to take her from me. telling me that I am unfit. She just wants to be the center of attention which I can't do because I have 5 other children to take care of. He raised his oldest son whom is living with me now because he put him out. His oldest daughter has nothing to do with him so why should I subject her to him and allow him to ruin her as well. I don't know what to do but I am so lost!!!! She told me she is not coming back

She is 16 - old enough to make up her own mind. I know that here in Australia, they won't even bother with a custody case over a 16 year old. You might need to just accept her decision and make sure she knows that you will always be there for her if she changes her mind and her bed will always be there for her.
