Best Answer

The law reads that the child's age and emotional maturity will be taken into consideration, but the final decision depends entirely on the judge's decision.

However, when the child turns the age of 14 he or she (if the judge in the case feels the child is mature enough) may ask to speak to the judge in his /her own behalf and make his/her wishes known to the judge and why the child wants to choose to live with that parent.

If the judge agrees with the child's assessment, the judge could rule that way. If the judge does not agree then the child must abide by the judges's decision.
