Update: I just admitted my dd into a mental health clinic

First off, thank you all for your kind words and advice. Now, I have spoken to several therapists, 2 doctors and a lawyer, all of whom have advised me to file for sole custody and to have a protection from abuse order filed against her father. She is 13 years old, and seeing her suffering like this is horrible. Her father knows she has been hospitalized, and has not tried to see her or speak to her at all. He hasn't even called me to see how she is. I have talked to her every night, and have been up to the clinic to see her this week, she looks really tired, and asked me about 100 times, "Can I come home?" I wanted so bad to say yes, let's go, but I know that she needs to be there for her safety and to get the help she needs. Thank you all again, hopefully she will get better soon and be able to come home.

Thanks for the update. I'm glad she is getting the help she still needs, and I'm glad you're filing for full custody since it is something she needs. I'm sorry her dad is such an ass. It must be very painful for her.

thanks for the update.   I think the protection from abuse order is a good idea as well as sole custudy.
