    Default Can My Dad Get Custody of Me if My Mom Won't Let Him

    My question involves guardianship in the State of: Florida
    Hey I am 16 years old and I am tired of living with my mom. I have been trying to live with my dad for about three years now. My mom will not let me go live with him and has not given him nor myself a reason why. My dad does not want to take her to court because he does not believe in fighting over a child, but I think it has come to that point because I am tired of her threatning me with not seeing him. I have to do all these things just so I can go visit on weekends and its not that way with me wanting to go see other people nor is it the same way when my little sisters want to go somewhere! Someone please help me I am in desperate need of guidance!

    This isn't really your legal matter.

    If Dad won't go to court, then there's nothing you can do except wait it out until you're 18.

    Mom is under no obligation to even discuss custody with you.

    If your dad is not willing to go to court and apply for a change of custody, you're going to be living with your mother till you're 18. End of discussion.

    Even if he is willing, he might or might not succeed. But if your mother has custody, then she's got it, and nothing is going to change it beyond a court order. And to GET a court order, he has to - well, go to court.

    I think your dad has the right to see you unless he has given up parental rights or he isn't suitable for it. I think thats correct but im not sure, I'm kinda ignorant when it comes to law stuff....lol

    The issue is not whether he can SEE his dad. The issue is how to go about getting a change of custody.

    Then, and I'm saying this in a very friendly way, you probably shouldn't post about legal matters.

    For instance, if Dad had terminated his rights - he's no longer Dad. It would be moot.

    And ditto cbg's post.
