At our last hearing my sons 14 and 11 testified in your court their to desire to live with as well as their reasons. Their father said there was a law/code that states it can’t be decided on their wishes only. I have not been apply to find any such law/code. We are back in court April 30 and I would like to address this issue. Thank you.
No, there is no such code section. It is however not likely that a judge would make a decision based on the word of a child alone.
Family Code 3042 - the court "shall consider preference of child and give it weight" - but the final test if 'best interest of child'
