Any case law from any state that seems similar to my

Any case law from any state that seems similar to my situationI understand each case is different and that mine can be rather complex but id like to see a similar case to mine and its resultsThis case involves two 9 year old children from FL that were cared for by two unmarried parents up until age 5. The mother left the household upon breakup and I cared for and provided for the majority of their needs until June 2016 when their mother agreed to care for them for the summer. Previous to this, the mother moved out of state to GA in Sept 2015. Instead of sending them back as agreed, she has kept them past the original verbal agreement.I have since filed a petition for paternity and related relief (custody). Paternity has already been established by way of AOP and even more so with previous order of child support.I also filed a motion for child pick up which was granted but cannot be enforced in another state, yetAre there any other remedies as well, should i be seeking any other type of relief.She will not let me see them. She only lets me speak to them by phone. She refuses to send them home

My attorney said at 14 my children can decide for themselves

My attorney said at 14 my children can decide for themselves when they visit the other parent. For example my 14 year old wants to go to an activity with the parent who is not parenting that day. The child can choose to go even if the prenting parent does not approve. Is this true?
