Best Answer

Yes. The court (I'm guessing this is a divorce thing) will usually honor a sixteen year old's request.

No.

Minors are not allowed to decide with whom the wish to reside.

A judge may speak with the child concerning issues such as the school they attend, friends, neighborhood, extracurricular activites and so forth.

Custodial decisions are always based upon what is in the best interest of the child and not the preference of any of the involved parties.

What is the age that a child can choose which parent they want to live with in Virginia?

You can choose the parent you want to live with when you are 18. Minors are not allowed to choose in any state. In some states they are allowed to voice their opinion but the judge is in no way obligated to follow the minors wish. It's either your parents or the judge who decide.
