Can Kids Choose Where they Live?
As an experienced New Jersey Child Custody Lawyer, I often have clients call me and ask if their child can choose which parent they want to live with.
- Parents often wonder whether their child will have a voice certain issues of their divorce case.
- The bearing of a child’s opinion on a court’s decision depends on several factors, including the judge and the child’s age.
- Although most judges prefer not to directly involve children as to where they will live, an expert with whom the parents have consulted can express the child’s wishes.
