can a 16 year old choose who she wants to live with after her custodial parent deceases?Can my 16 year old granddaughter choose to live with me when her father is out of town working? Her mother is deceased. Her step-mother is emotionally abusive to her when her father is not home. I have raised her nearly from the time she was 18 months old. We are very close. Can she live with me if she chooses to?
