I have had custody of my daughter since she was five and her father has had visitation. He currently lives in another state from us. Me and my husband are very loving and caring parents and want only the best for my daughter. Lately she has been slacking in school and lying a lot and has a bad attitude some times. I think it is the other kids she hangs out with in school. We do set certain rules for her and expect her to follow them and we are not strict with her at all. She feels she can do whatever she wants, whenever she wants. She is 14 and I am wondering if she has the right to say she wants to live with her father. He pretty much buys her anything and lets her do everything and anything she wants. There is absolutely no structure or rules in his house. I can't imagine a judge would allow that to happen. Any stories?

First off your ex would have to file for custody to get your daughter. Your daughter can't just go there and stay.

Secondly, she is old enough to give her opinion to the court, but the judge decides, not the minor child.
