It depends. You can ask a judge he will decide. ALSO If your parent gives you consent...yes. ANSWER - Any change of custody requires a court order. This is true regardless of what the parents may arrange. In the end, it protects both parents. Therefore, the parents may reach an agreement, but it must be sanctioned by the court. If the parents cannot agree there may need to be acourt hearing. As part of a court proceeding, a court may consult with the 17 year-old regarding his or her preference. The child should be prepared to give good cogent reasons why he or she is making this particular choice. However, the court will make the final decision.
Not until you are 18 can you choose.
