      It is extremely uncommon for a court to grant children full control over the decision of which parent they want to live with. Generally, an older child will be allowed to state their preferences, however. Some states specify an age in which the child's preference is considered. Other states allow the judge to determine the child's maturity level, and whether or not their opinion will be taken into consideration. The Henry Law Firm, located in Overland Park, can help you understand Kansas' child support laws, how custody is determined and work with you to pursue an agreement that is best for you and your child.
