When you are 18, you are recognized as being an adult and any court order about which parent has custody ends. You can decide for yourself where you will live once you are 18 years old.
The information provided here does not create an attorney-client relationship between the attorney providing the information and the questioner. Moreover, the questioner should not rely on this answer but should instead obtain advice from an attorney who has the opportunity to review all relevant facts and all relevant court orders and pleadings before rendering the advice.
Any terms of a custody/visitation order are no longer in effect once you turn 18. One of your parents may continue to receive child support from the other for a period of time past your 18th birthday, but the custody/visitation terms no longer apply.
