DearCustomer- The laws that permit children to choose are designed as between parents and do not give children the right to live with just anyone they please. In addition, you say the aunt has a guardianship which is different form normal child custody and is through the probate court.
If she simply had child custody you could make a motion for a change of custody with the court that granted the order and the court would award custody based on the best interests of the child and would most likely listen to testimony from the child.
In the case of a guardianship you would have to petition the probate court for the removal of your aunt as guardian and apply for a guardianship for yourself. It is much more complicated than a simple change of custody.
In either case you must file with the appropriate court for either a change of custody or a removal of the guardian.
