At what age can a child decide who they want to live with in Georgia?

Report as

The age of discretion in Georgia is the age at which the child can decide who they want to live with and this is usually 14 years. When the child decides the parent to live with at that age, such decision is controlling, meaning final, unless such parent is deemed to be unfit.

In most states, when the child is 12, the judge will take into consideration the child's wishes (as long as the parent he or she wants to live with can provide a good home).
