    Default My 17 Year Old Daughter Wants to Live with Me but Her Father Won't Let Her

    My question involves guardianship in the State of: WA

    She want's to spend Senior year with me but her father has threatened to charge her as a runaway and me for harboring her if she does. I know she's old enough to choose but we can't afford attorney fees to make it happen... any suggestions?

    The age of majority, when she can choose where to live, is 18 in Washington. Until then, she lives where her legal guardian or primary custodian allows her to live. So your options are to either (a) convince dad to allow her to go, or, (b) find some major change in circumstances in the minor's life that would give the court reason to consider a change in custody.
