As long as you are a minor you are not allowed to decide who you will live with.

It is not a crime because the parent is the legal guardian (usually) and has the right to decide what is right for their child.

Connecticut does not have a set age limit as to when a child can pick a parent to live with. A judge will listen to their preference but it ultimately is up to the judge to decide.

Yes. In custody battles a child at the age of 14 is legal age to decide for themselves as to which parent they want to live with.

Minors are not allowed to choose so you have to be 18.

Yes, in Tennessee a child can choose which parent to live with even if the other parent has custody. The child will have to go to court and tell a judge they choose to live with the other parent.

If the child is a legal citizen they go to the closest legal relative, if there is no one to take the child they go into foster care. If the child is not a legal citizen they will be deported with the parent. If the child is a legal citizen and they aren't registered in school they can be deported with the parent as well.

Minors have no legal standing, but the judge will take a teenager's thoughts into consideration.

i think either 11 or 12. i know you can at 12 but not sure about 11.

Yes, since the child will be under 16 years old, the child cannot legally decide by themselves that they will not go there. (Assuming that the parent is the child's legal guardian).
