Children do not get to decide their own custody arrangements in NC. If the parents are unable to agree then a court has the authority to make the decision and the opinion of a 14 year old will be considered. These situation become very difficult with an older child that refuses to do what is ordered. When that happens I rarely see the parties satisfied with the outcome.
