Not until you're 18 - a legal adult - can you make the choice. As a juvenile, you can't chose which parent to live with. You can, however, petition the court to hear your reasons or have one of your parents petition the court on your behalf.

Does a child have to live with a parents half the time for that parent to be considered the residential parent in Ohio?

I live in Ohio and I do believe the child in question must live with the parent MORE than 50% of the year for that particular parent to be "the Residential Parent". In my case, it was described in the Divorce Decree that I was to be the sole custodian and residential parent. If you need further info, try calling the Ohio State Bar Association and see if they can point you in the right direction or give you the info you need- they may even be able to do it for "free". :) peggy
