Customer Question

what is age of child in Kentucky when they can say which parent they want to live with?

A child can not choose a parent to live with. At the age of 10 the courts in Kentucky will listen to a child's desire of where he/she wishes to live and why. At that point the judge must take into consideration the evidence of the case as well as the wishes of the child and make a ruling based on the best interest of the child.

If there is no reason why a change in custody should not take place often the judge will rule with the child, though this is no guarantee and in the end is up to the judge.

I wish you the best,
