AnswerTechnically, unless you are eighteen, you cannot fully decide for yourself which parent you will be allowed to live with. However, children (usually aged thirteen and older) have petitioned the courts to have change custody from one parent to another.

Be aware that the judge will look at various aspects, not just what you want. Why exactly do you want to live with your other parent? Is your current custodial parent in any way abusing you or preventing you from going to school? If your mad because your one parent won't let you date or drive a car and living with your other parent you could, a judge probably won't see the need to change custody.

The judge will look at your grades, your school attendance, any criminal history on your part. He will also see how mature you act and ask you why you feel your home life would be improved living with your other parent. He can and may hear testimony from both your parents about how they feel about the situation.
