It varies from state to state and country to country. Usually the "Age of Consent" is recognized by the judge and affords the minor the option to choose which parent to live with. Some states do not grant the child any say in the decision.

Unfortunately that is not your decision. The courts will decide which parent you live with or if you live with both. The court may take into consideration your feelings on this matter.

No matter the state you live in until you are 18 you cannot decide who you live with. You can however get your own attorney to help fight for your best interests.
