Best Answer

Minor children are not allowed to make the decision as to which parent they prefer to reside. If the parents cannot come to a equitable solution concerning primary custody the decision is made by the judge. Judges sometimes interview older children about the school they attend, friends, and activities they may be involved in such as a sports team. The judge's decision however, will be based upon what is in the best interest of the child and not the preference of others.
