Child arrangements order/custody

Hi all.
After some help if possible please. My almost 16 year old lives with her dad and his new wife and I have her a few days a week. She is desperately unhappy and has been for some time and wants to come and live with me when she turns 16. Her dad is extremely controlling and intimidating and she is scared to death of telling him.

I've just done some research and what I've found states that the child arrangement order that's in place stays that way until she is 18, yet contradicts itself by saying a child can legally choose where they live at 16.

Can anyone help me shed any light on this?
