Legal age to decide which parent to live with in a divorce situation in the state of Alabama?

In deciding which parent the children should live with in a divorce situation, the court takes into consideration a number of factors, including the sex of the parent, how much the child has bonded with that parent, whether the child would have to change schools or their surroundings, etc. Although some feel that the standard age of 14 is when a child is able to decide which parent to live with, a Judge does not have to go by this age in making his or her decision. Age is just "one" factor considered among many others. It is not an absolute determining factor.

Family Feud:dress alike, talks like her, never home, they're fighting, bad gradesAssuming this question is directed by the parent then the parent may not know just how much time their teenager is spending with their best friend unless the teenager brings their best friend home or mentions they are seeing each other a lot at school or that the teenager is over at their best friend's house. Week days should be for concentrating on studies at school and doing homework and weekends are generally a reprieve for teenagers to go out and have some fun.
