In all courts across the United States of America the general rule of thumb is 12/13. But in the end it is always up to the judge's discretion. * Minor children are not allowed to choose which parent they wish to reside with during custodial proceedings. In some cases the judge will interview a child who is mature enough to understand the circumstances, he child is then allowed to state their wishes and the reasons for the choice. This however does not affect the outcome of the judge's decision, as all such rulings are based on what is in the best interest of the child and not an individual's preference.
