Can a 14-year old child choose which parent they want to live with?

Can a 14 year old child choose which parent he or she wants to live with? This is a common question. While domestic relations courts will often place a great deal of weight on the age of the child, it is actually only one of sixteen factors set forth in Ohio Revised Code 3109.051(D). Other factors include the child’s relationship with extended family, the location of the parents’ homes, the amount of time that will be available for the child to spend with his or her brothers or sisters, the mental and physical health of the parties, whether either of the parents have a criminal history, and whether either of the parents’ actions resulted in a child being an abused or neglected child.
