    While a judge may hear your thoughts and wishes, you do not get to choose whom you live with until 18.

    In Colorado the law there does not care what your wishes are. If the parent you currently live with does not want you to live with the other parent there is nothing that can be done!! I know this because my 13yr daughter wants to live me I am her mother and I have contact many attorneys and they have all told me that we are out of luck unless her dad is willing she has to stay with him as long as his is providing her with basic food, clothing, shelter and medical care that is all that is required by law! I know is sticks but that's the law but remember this the day you turn 18 you can pack your bags and leave.
