    Answered . If you are over the age of 18, then you are able to live where you choose.

    If you are still a minor, then any custody or visitation order in place would remain in effect. If this is the case, I would recommend that you ask your mother to consult with an attorney who can review the order and determine any action that may be available.

    Best of luck!

Work on trying to restore the relationship at some point.
