how old does a child have to be in order for their testimony to be taken into consideration regarding a child custody order
1 Answer from Attorneys
There is no set age.. A child may voice an opinion when a court deems him/her to be of suitable age and maturity. That doe snot mean the child testifies. Instead, their wishes are often conveyed through a Guardian Ad Litem appointed by the court.
