Hi everyone, I was hoping someone can point me to the right direction or give me some information if anyone has come across the same issue. My daughter lives with me here in Australia and her mum recently moved back to NZ with her partner and 2 kids. My ex wants my daughter to stay with her partner's mum in Brisbane because they cannot afford for her to come back to NZ at the moment. My daughter doesn't want to go and stay with her partner's mum. My question is, does she have to go were she doesn''t want to and can her mother make her? We don't have anything in writing as far custody of children goes it's all verbal and I would like to know if it's best to contact a family lawyer to get more information and to put things in writing. Thanks in advance.
