children can tell you who they want to live with when they are 5 years old, but it is hard on the child, they want their parents together, not apart. the child might want to live with thire mum and then they might want to go to their dads, all i wanted was my parents together and i found it hard and confused and the child might think it is thire flaut you are not together anymore.

hope that helps you

AnswerIf the question refers to legal proceedings such as those pertaining to child custody, it is generally left to the discretion of the presiding judge. Most judges will consider the wishes of a child that they feel has the maturity to make such a choice. It does not necessarily depend upon the age of the child, but more on the child's ability to comprehend the issues involved. AnswerIn Indiana 14 years old+ can decide who they want to live with. according to Indiana Law Books at Public Library.
