My husband is divorcing me and wants 50/50 custody of our daughter. I have at last found somewhere to rent and move out today. My daughter does not want to live with her dad and is very upset. She is eleven and saying she will run away from him and is scared of him. HELP! What can I do? Applying to have sole residency with me will take months.
Are you in the UK OP? I am sorry your DD is already so distressed and am sure at 11 her thoughts on this would count for something in court - certainly the courts look at what is in the child's best interests.
