Courts rarely grant children full control over this decision, but generally allow older children to state their preferences. Some states have a specific age at which courts should consider a child’s preferences, while other states allow judges to make that determination based on a child’s maturity. A local family law attorney can help you understand how custody is decided in your state and work with you to pursue an optimal arrangement.
