The age of the child is not relevant, as the decision of which parent will retain custody is made by the presiding judge. The judge will make the decision based on what the court believes is best for the child, not upon the preference of the child or any other involved party.

You're not legally a child at 18... You can do whatever the hell you want. Yet I'm not sure that either parent legally has to let you live with them.

The child have to be 18 to choose. From around 14 the court might want to ask for the minors opinion but is not obligated to follow.

In the state of South Carolina a child has the right to choose which parent they would like to live with at the age of 14. The judge takes in the level of maturity of the child, and other mitigating factors.

As long as you are a minor you are not allowed to decide.

Tell them how you feel. Unfortunately a child below 18 is not allowed to choose for themselves.

The age of majority is 18. At that age they can live where they choose.
