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.
In Texas, if a child is 14 or older, he/she can choose to live with a grandparent as long as permission is given by the custodial parent.
The child have to be 18 in order to choose where to live but in some states the grandparents do have the right to seek custody. But unless the parents are found unfit I can't see that you would get custody.
i dont think so you should be able to move in with grandparent as long as they try to get custody
i can help you! you can come live with me and we can be room ates!!!!! ok!!!!!
A minor can not choose where to live. That is up to the parents or the court depending on the details. If your non-custodial parent who lives out of state wants you to live with him/her, they have to petition for custody unless your custodial parent will consent to the change and join in a modification of the custody order.
No. Only the grandparents who have custody over you can give you consent to do so. And even then, they may not be able to give you permission to live with your other grandparents, depending on why you other grandparents were not given custody over you in the first place.
At the age of eighteen.
A minor can not choose where to live. Your grandparents can apply for custody after the parental rights have been given up or taken from your parents by the court. If you are living in a unsafe environment you have to tell someone or call the CPS.
Old enough that you have custody of yourself. Family court generally does take the child's opinion (at any age) into consideration, but they're not bound by it. Of course, at 18, you can live with anyone that's still willing to have you.
You need to add more information to this question, like who is choosing for instance and why.
it depends, what your situation is, is she asking you to give her full custody?because your not being the father she wants you to be,and she don't want you to be in his life. or you've actually have custody but your in a situation (went or are) going to jail, look if the grandparent have always helped you with this child ,and know them well. and the grandparents are willing to help you out, give them custody or if its only for a little while your gonna be gone .you can also write them temporary custody.oh before i forget ask give temporay custody if your gonna want the child back . same if you were to choose the mother. if your for any reason don't understand, feel free to e-mail me
In this case it does not really matter who have custody since a minor is not allowed to choose and you have to be 18 to do so and by then you are free to live with whoever you choose.
I don't think that is possible. It is up to the judge to choose which parent is more suitable for custody of the child. Even try joint custody. Therefore, the answer is 18, at which point you're no longer legally a child and can live wherever you like.
Legally minors are not allowed to choose.
Generally no. A change in custody must be made by a court order.
Generally, custody orders end at age eighteen and the child can choose where she wants to live.

Not unless the parents file a report. Also the parents of the minor have other legal options to have the minor returned to their custody if that is what they choose to do.
Not until he is of legal adult age. When it comes to divorce the judge might let the minor choose but then only between parents.
Only with parental permission. Minors can not choose where to live.
If the step parent files for custody, and the judge awards custody of the child to them.
If you have joint legal custody yes you do have the right to help choose who cares for your children. The parents should discuss the issue reasonably and try to agree.If you have joint legal custody yes you do have the right to help choose who cares for your children.
