Will the Judge consider what my child(ren) wants?

  • Depending on the age of your child(ren), the Judge may consider your child(ren)’s view in making his/her decision. However, the Judge will consider a variety of factors and the Judge does not have to follow the child’s wishes.
  • In a contested custody/visitation case, the Judge may appoint an Attorney for the Child to advocate for the child(ren)’s position.
