When the judge feels a minor is old enough to understand the circumstances pertaining to custodial issues he or she will speak with the minor child about different matters. Some of the questions that might be asked would be: How is the child feels about their current school, neighborhood, friendships, extra-curricular activities, a job (if applicable) and so forth. A 17-year-old would be asked such questions and perhaps more personal ones concerning specific family issues such as the parent-child relationship.

However, regardless of the age a minor does not choose which parent they wish to live with, although at the age cited the judge may take it into consideration. The final decision is always made by the judge based on what is in the best interest of the minor child and not on any of the preference of any of the involved parties.

AnswerUntil you're 18 you have to live with the parent that the court has awarded custody to. But, the non-custodial parent can petition the court to have custody changed. If you're a teenager (and I'm assuming you are), you would be given the chance to tell the court who you would prefer to live with. The court makes the final decision, but they will take your wishes into consideration when making that decision.

But, in addition to that, a minor can go before their guardian's attorney and make a written request at the age of 12. That request will be set before a judge and that is when the consideration will be made.
