15 y/o SD wants to change schools
Me and H live on the other side of town from his ex. They have joint physical custody of their 3 kids, but his son decided to live with X full time before I ever met H. My older SD deicided to live with X full time when she was 16 because H wouldn't let her do whatever she wanted without consequences (and her mom does). So now I have one SD (15) left living with us, most of the time. She doesn't like it at her mom's; she says her mom and her siblings are toxic and she doesn't really want to go there anymore (maybe to visit every once in a while, not stay 2 weeks) and she wants to change schools so she'll go to the one that's closer to our house. I think legally she's old enough to decide which parent she wants to live with, but I'm concerned that she might need her mom's permission to change schools (and she would NEVER.) She's already really excited about going to a new school, and I really don't want to see her get her hopes up just to be dissapointed by her mom (AGAIN).Our address is on her driving permit and her paystubs, and she stays with us 75% of the time. Most of the answers I'm finding online address schooling for small children. Has anyone been through this? Please don't tell me we'll have to go through a dirty court process just to get her into the school SHE WANTS to go to!
