Can a 16 year old decide who he lives with?

I am a divorced and remarried father of a 16 year old boy & have had custody of my son since he was 6 months old. I live 2 hours a way from my ex wife, and we meet every other weekend for her to exercise her visitation. She has accepted a job in Dallas, TX. My son wants to move with her. (She is a Disney land Mom) He gets whatever he wants when he goes there, with very little discipine if any. Can a teenager, determine who he lives with and where he lives? My ex wife recieved 1 years severance pay,from her previous employer and has alot of money at her disposal. My son has told me that she has hired an attorney, and plans on taking me to court to get custody of my 16 year old son, so he can move to TX. SHe is not currenty married, she has a live in boyfriend, and has had 2 additional divorces. Any reply would be welcomed.
