Quote from: Kitty C. on Jun 06, 2011, 03:00:30 PM'In Texas at the age of 12 a child can decide where they want to stay...' Not quite, Simpledad.....it's important in issues like this that the meaning isn't misconstrued. A child can VOICE who they want to live with, but you're right.....it still is up to the judge whether it's granted or not. OP, keep in mind that the child just can't say 'I want to go live with Dad because I like it better there.' If the child gives a fairly mature basis for their decision, it will carry more weight with the judge.
