What Happens If My Teenager Tells The Judge In My Buffalo Divorce That They Want To Live With My Ex?

In many cases, judges are interested to hear what preferences children, and especially teenagers, have when it comes to child custody in a divorce in Buffalo.

And while you may worry that your teen will “choose” your spouse over you and that will decide the issue, the truth is that custody is a much more complex matter than simply asking for a minor’s opinion.

Child custody is about determining the home that provides the most stability, love, and structure for the child, and which parent is best equipped to meet the challenges of day-to-day parenting.

Which parent can provide that is based on a number of factors, and the judge will give weight to a number of considerations before determining whether you or your spouse should end up with legal or physical custody of your child.
