I want to live with my dad but mom wont let me

i am a 13, year old girl that wants to live with her dad

Your mom must have a really good reason as to why she doesn't want you to live with your dad. You don't have to necessarily live with your dad; you can always go visit him once in a while. Personally I think that at 13 a girl should stay with her mom so I think it's for the best.

Anywhere you go to visit will always seem better than where you live, because everything's new and your free from obligations when you're there. If you moved to SD with your Dad you'd eventually start to feel the same way you do now. The secret is to make the best of where you're at. In my opinion, if your Dad was an upstanding father he wouldn't have moved far away from you in the first place. I'm sure he's probably a good person and all, but your Mom has stuck with you.

She loves you to much to let you go. Tell her you want to live with your dad for change and if you love me you should let me. Tell her you love her but you miss your dad, maybe you can do like every other week seeing the different parents.

I think that she doesn't want to let you go and if she does she thinks that you won't want to see her anymore now that you were with your dad.

Maybe she just wants you all to herself or she'd be lonely without you with her when you went to your dad's house. Maybe ask her if you could spend week days with her and weekends with your dad.

Well, I've been in your situation and I ended up staying with my mom. Looking back on it, i should've gone with my dad but thats because my mom and I are 2 different people. You're old enough by law (if you live in Ca) to make that decision yourself so if you want to live with your dad, you should talk to him and see if that's okay with him and just politely let your mom know. If there are problems with your mom than maybe you should explain to her that it might be best for your relationship if you go with your dad. Hope this helps.
