No child under the age of 18 can make the choice of which parent to live with. A parent can petition in the child's name and the court will hear a reasonable argument from the child, but a juvenile can make no legally binding decisions.

A minor child may not choose to live with the non-custodial parent. The non-custodial parent can go to court to have the custody order modified, but the only age at which a child is free to choose which parent they want to live with is the one at which they're no longer a minor.


What age can a child decide which parent he wants to live with in Mississippi?

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.
