My son is 12 and is making noises about moving in with me. I had heard that he can make that decision when he is 13, but don’t know for sure. I know his mother will fight, even if he outright says he wants to move in with me. I want to know if there is a standard or precedence on which to base a “defense”.
Assuming there is a standard, my other son is 10 (will be 11 when the older one turns 13)… would the court consider splitting the children, even if both decide to change caregivers but only one is, in fact, old enough to legally make the decision??
