A minor cannot decide with whom they wish to live. It would be necessary for the father to give the minor permission to move in with the relative and provide for the minor's support if that is allowed. In lieu of that, the relative would have to file a petition with the court to be granted custody or guardianship.

In most states you have to be 18 to choose so it depends on if your parents let you decide.

Your son is 16 he does not want to ever live with his dad again his dad has custody of him but he has been living with you for 2 years now can the father make him come live with him?

Yes, if his dad has custody of him. You might need to go to court again to get custody of your son, so he won't have to live with his dad. Good luck and God Bless:)

No you can't. Your parents are in charge of you until you are 18. Some states will let a person decide where they want to live at 16, but not all of them.

Can a 16-year-old who is living with his dad move out and live with his mom?

I'm assuming Dad has custody. If so, then Mom would have to petition the court for a change of custody. At 16, the court would allow you to tell the judge who you want to live with and they will take that (along with other things) into consideration when making the final decision.
