As a general rule, the older the child, the more their opinion will factor in a custody fight in Brooklyn, but the child’s preference is just one of the many factors that are considered in determining which home environment is in the best interest of the child.
The court is interested in knowing where a teenager would like to live, but the judge will also be aware that complex family dynamics are in play, and there are many elements to evaluate to decide which home will provide the most stability.
