Minor's are not allowed to choose with whom they wish to live, although the judge may speak with the child and take his or her opinions into consideration when making custodial decisions. Likewise, the grandparent who has temporary custody cannot release the minor into the custody of any other person including a parent without first obtaining permission from the court.

A minor can not choose where to live. That is up to the parents or the court depending on the details.
