Re: Teens rights with divorced parents
Children become adults when they are 18, and then can choose where they want to live.
If there is a pending court case to modify conservatorship, a child over the age of 12 can advise the judge which parent they prefer to live with. It is not binding on the judge, but it is a factor that is considered.
