No, not without a court order. In every state in the US, the child must reach the age of majority in the state where they reside (18 to 21 depending on the state) before they can make legally make that decision without approval of the court.

The truth is that a child has no legal right to choose which parent he or she wants to live with. They are legally minors dependent upon their parents. The truth is it will vary from case to case.

Under Tennessee statute, the court will consider the reasonable preference of the child over the age of 12. They can choose to listen to what the child wants but they are not obliged to follow that wish. And the child can only choose between parents not friends etc. To move from parents they need parental consent. The court will not agree to that a child moves from fit parents to live with friends or grandparents.

in the last episode of Hannah Montana, miley dreams of blue jeans and in her dreams blue jeans tells her to move back to Tennessee so then miley tells her dad she wants to move but lily lives with her and miley couldn't leave her so they bought a ranch in between Tennessee and Malibu!

Yeah if that is what that person wants.

Because no one wants to be followed by robots. God wants our love, and wants us to CHOOSE to follow Him.

Depending on the state, and if the father is secure and responsible enough to support the boy, he should be able to choose which parent he lives with.

There is no such process. A child of 12 is not allowed to choose.

Depends if the parent has said that the child can choose what he wants, if the parent has then it is recommended that the child is given the choice of the school that they get to go to

The dog will choose whether or not it wants to eat it.

maybe if you return a cat to someone who wants it they will give you a reward, hope this was helpful :)

The court might ask what parent he wants to live with but they are in no way obligated to follow his wish and especially not if the parent were abusive.

I would guess she lives where ever she wants!
