    In NO State is a 12-year old's opinion of which parent he/she wants to live with binding on the Court.

    In no state can a minor of any age ever decide.  In all states, the judge can listen to the child's statement and take it into account.  But it's always the judge that decides.

    No..  A child NEVER gets to decide.

    If there is a custody dispute, a JUDGE decides
