18. Minors are not allowed to decide.
What child, what age, what state, what judge?
No because you have to be 16
He has to be 18. Minors are not allowed to choose.
Here the child at 16 years can not decide where she or he wants to live. As they are minors the court will decide it for them.
Depends if the parent has said that the child can choose what he wants, if the parent has then it is recommended that the child is given the choice of the school that they get to go to
In the state of Illinois, the court decides which parent that a child will live with. There is no particular age that the court will allow a child to choose, but will take into consideration the reasons the child wants to live with a certain parent, and the ability to articulate their choices.
In most States the Judge will take into consideration were the child wants to live after the age 14.
The courts will take into consideration the child's wants as to whom they want to live with but in the state of TX the child is not old enough to "decide" until age 13.
The child already lives with the custodial parent.In the child wants to live with the non custodial parent that parent must petition for a modification of the custody order. The "best interests of the child" is considered by the judge. The court will hear what the child has to say, if the child is old enough to reason, but will not necessarily do what the child asks.At age eighteen the child can make their own decision.
No. They can express their opinion, but the decision is up to the parents (or the court if parents cannot agree)
In the US you can decide for yourself when you are 18. In some states a minor from a certain age can give state his wish to a judge but the judge is not obligated to follow it.
No, minors are not allowed to decide.
If that is what the parent wants, they can do so. The parent can decide where the minor lives.
When you are 18 you can decide to stay or go.
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.
A child has to be 14 years old in order to choose which parent it wants to live with in the state of Georgia. However, if there is a valid reason why the child should not be with the chosen parent, the judge can step in.
He has to be 18. Minors are not allowed to decide.
Not as long as he is a minor.
18. But if it goes to court the court might ask the child who he wants to live with if he is around 15yo and the court might follow his wish but is not obligated to.
