Can A Child Choose Which Parent They Live With?

As part of any divorce where there are children, there will the decision, often made in court following submissions from respective family lawyers on behalf of their clients, as to which parent those children will live with.

In most cases, that is likely to be the mother, although there is never an assumption that it will be, which is not what most people believe to be the case. Most parents are somewhat shocked to discover that the courts do not automatically order that the children live with their mother.
