In a Texas case, can a child decide which parent to live with?
They would say, I know it's in my best interest and it's in my best interest for example, to reside with dad. They did away with those a couple of years ago. Now the code references kids that are twelve and older. Being able to ask the court to have them interviewed in the judge's Chambers. The section on that is poorly worded and it's very short and doesn't address many of the particulars on it. I think some of the judges are very uncomfortable with that as well. So ultimately, regardless of age, kids cannot ultimately determine that it's based on what's in their best interest.
