The children can give their opinion as to those who wish to live with, although it is frowned upon by many when a judge asks children to give an opinion, since it creates a feeling the child that they are betraying the parents. It is ultimately the decision of the family court judge, who must weigh the evidence and decide the division and type of custody granted to each parent. Of course, many other factors that add into the decision, such as issues of abuse (if present), stable living situation, financial situation etc Basically child's opinion of things, but it is not the ultimate deciding factor as to custody.
