When husband and I were trying to get custody of his son, that is what we were told, that when he was 13, he could choose for himself which one to live with. Of course, the other parent was putting a lot of pressure on the son, but he finally lived with us. Don't know if you can just do this on your own, but if an attorney or courts are involved, I believe at 13, they seriously take the child's wishes into consideration, at least in the state we are in.

you can't do things to live happy, you CHOOSE to live happy

You need to be happy, because its what you live for. you live to make yourself happy, and you live to make others happy as well.

I'm not an expert or anything but you should be able to go move in with your dad, but in Texas you have to be over 12 to choose where you live. Your mom shouldn't be doing that YOU choose where YOU want to live as long as YOUR happy.:)

A 12yo child is not allowed to choose where to live so if the parents have decided on this they have to go to court to change the custody order.

It all depends on where you live, lets say you live in Ohio. you can be 12 years of age in order to choose which parent you decide to reside with. remember! it all depends on the state.

An eighteen year old is an adult and can live wherever he or she chooses. A custody order has no bearing on this.

Well you don't...Sometimes in life it's hard to choose but when it comes down to it, you have to choose the one that makes you happier, the one that you can't live without... The one that you would wait for and the one that you can talk to about anything, without judgement...You have to be happy in all the areas of your life, and sometimes it sucks to hurt someone but you have to choose because you cant have your cake and eat it too! trust me live your life being happy, with the ONE that makes you happy!!!!!!!!!!! xoxo misread09

You are entitled to live with your boyfriend if you choose, that's how the term 'step-parent' came about, everybody has the right to be happy!

By law, a child does not choose. When you are 18, you are no longer a child, and can choose where you live.

User Avatar

It is Important for a child that age to have a choice in who they want to live with. They are old enogh to know what makes them happy in life and to deny that right is wrong.

Generally no. A change in custody must be made by a court order.

Choose? Princesses don't get to choose. She was married to the King of France. Where else should she live?

Some people choose to live in the Ring of Fire because they have always lived there and it is their home. Others probably choose to live there to research. It is impossible to say exactly why someone would choose to live there.

A minor child may not choose to live with the non-custodial parent. The non-custodial parent can go to court to have the custody order modified, but the only age at which a child is free to choose which parent they want to live with is the one at which they're no longer a minor.
