There is not an age at which a minor is allowed to choose where or with whom they wish to live. A judge may speak with an older teen concerning the issue, but the decision will be based upon the what the judge feels is best suited for the optimate well-being of the child or children involved.

In this case it does not really matter who have custody since a minor is not allowed to choose and you have to be 18 to do so and by then you are free to live with whoever you choose.

An eighteen year old is an adult and can live wherever he or she chooses. A custody order has no bearing on this.

He is an adult now so unless he is mentally ill or something you can not get custody over an adult.

If the minor's custody was awarded by court order, probably not, unless one parent or the other petitions the court for a change of custody.

No. Only the grandparents who have custody over you can give you consent to do so. And even then, they may not be able to give you permission to live with your other grandparents, depending on why you other grandparents were not given custody over you in the first place.

If the son wants to I believe he can. In my state (Georgia) the child can choose who he/she wants to live with at the age of 14.

anine year old child does not have power of atorney. so no. but a custody battle could ensue.

I doubt that it is possible. It is unlikely the court wuold turn over custody of a child to someone who committed Statutory Rape.

In the United States a man does not have that kind of control over the mother of his children. If she has custody then where she lives is her choice.In the United States a man does not have that kind of control over the mother of his children.

yes. if you go to court for a custody battle the judge might ask him who he wants to live with.

when you're in full custody someone has control over you. Like the police when they have custody over you they have captured you and you're in their control.

A 14 year old should be able to choose which parent they live with within reason. This of course depends on whether or not there is a custody case in progress.

User Avatar

Old enough that you have custody of yourself. Family court generally does take the child's opinion (at any age) into consideration, but they're not bound by it. Of course, at 18, you can live with anyone that's still willing to have you.

Yes, in Tennessee a child can choose which parent to live with even if the other parent has custody. The child will have to go to court and tell a judge they choose to live with the other parent.
