There is no age at which a minor may choose with whom they wish to live.

A judge will sometimes speak with a child who is mature enough to comprehend the circumstances concerning how said child feels about their current school, neighborhood, friends, and so forth.

Custodial decisions are always based on what is in the best interest of the child or children and not on the preferences of any of the involved parties.
