Can Our Kids Choose Which Parent They Live with After a Divorce in California?

When child custody is a factor during divorce, the decisions both parents must make regarding the kids’ well-being are some of the most important they will ever consider, including where they live, how they spend their weekends, vacations, or even time after school, and who pays for what based on those factors.

We have handled many child custody cases where the parents can simply compromise on splitting their time between both parent’s homes. Others can determine each aspect of their divorce — including child custody — during mediation. Yet others require a highly skilled litigator who can fight for wins inside the courtroom. No matter your unique child custody circumstances, we can help you pursue the outcome you desire, starting with a free assessment.

That includes outlining the child custody factors in California and determining if your kids are old enough to decide who they want to live with.

The state of California Family Code 3042 lists that a child “of sufficient age” — which is listed at the age of 14 or older — can provide their opinion on where they would like to live. However, it will be weighed with many other factors, too.

They may include:

  • The stability of each parent’s household
  • Either parent’s time spent away from the home
  • The child’s health and safety
  • Each parent’s ability to properly care for the child
  • Each parent’s overall bond with the child and history of caregiving
  • Either parent’s use of drugs or alcohol
  • Either parent’s history of abuse, neglect, or domestic violence
  • Who will encourage a relationship between the child and the other parent
  • Whether either parent has made a false allegation against the other parent to gain a custodial advantage

Typically, the parent who is awarded custody is also given child support, since he or she will have the children most of the time. Child support is a direct reflection of the time each parent spends with the children, so the person with visitation is often the one who pays, unless the parents have created a plan on their own.

Divorce, child custody, child support, and alimony can all be discussed and agreed upon during mediation or litigation. Once we determine which legal process is right for you, we will outline your case for success, so you can start planning your future with confidence.
