    Question: How old do I have to be to choose who I live with?

    Answer: The judge makes the final decision in custody cases. Sometimes the judge will ask to talk to the kids and sometimes the parents request that the judge talk to the children involved. Usually, if a judge decides that a child should live with just one parent, the judge will order visits with the other parent.
