Default Re: Can a 13 year old choose where to live?

I wish to submit that in your case the child being 13 years is below the age of discretion and therefore she cannot choose as to where to live. In case of girl, the age of discretion is 16 years. Further, the Court basically considers best interest of child while deciding on matter of stay.

she can only live with someone else with the permission of her parents or legal guardians.. if they say no, then its no, and she will have to wait till shes 18.
