Ohio's recognized adult age is 17. Otherwise, this will have to be decided by the courts * Minor's of any age are not allowed to choose who they wish to live with. The judge may interview the underage person as to their feelings about their current living arrangements, school, friends, and so forth and take such findings into account. Custodial decisions are based solely on what is in the best interest of the child/children and not on the preference of any involved party. That being the case, the father would have to file a petition to have the current custody order rescinded and for him to be granted primary physical custody. FYI, Ohio's legal age of majority is 18, the age at which a minor can be charged for a crime under adult statutes is 17, they are completely different issues.
