Minors are not allowed to choose with whom they wish to live. Judges will sometimes speak with the minor child/children about general issues such as the school they presently attend, neighborhood, friends and so forth. The judge decides custodial issues based entirely on what is in the best interest of the child/children and not on the preference of any involved party.
