Our absolute divorce was granted August 24, 2010 but we do not have a custody agreement or court order in place. The children have been living with me as the custodial parent since we separated on March 16, 2009. He gets them every other weekend from Fri night until I pick them up from school on Monday.
My daughter (10 years old) desparately wants to stop visiting her father because he is verbally abusive. She is seeing a counselor for this now and the counselor is attempting to work with her father on parenting. At what age would she be able to decide for herself that she no longer see him? At what age would a judge take her perspective into consideration if I were to seek full custody?
