Does anyone know when a child can choose to live with the other parent?
I am a father of two and I have joint custody with my ex-wife, but my son, who is now 9 years old, wants to live with me. My daughter,who is only 3 years old, has quite a long way to go before she can choose.
I have taken care of both of my children since they were born, and the recent custody study found that we were both good parents, but because she is the "mother", they were placed in her home as primary. I realize that the evaluators did what they thought was right, but they missed so much!!! My children would be much better off in my home due to the alcohol issues that my ex-wife has. But because she didn't have a police record, all the witnesses in the world didn't help my kids. They have to live with her until they are old enough to choose. Unless she is caught drinking and driving and cited, my children don't have a prayer. My son really wants away, but my daughter isn't old enough to realize quit yet. It's pretty bad, when my son can imitate a drunk. Please help me.
