What age does a child have to be to choose which parent to live with in the state of Florida?
I have a step-daughter that lives with us half-time since the age of 5. The mother has tried to discourage a relationship between us and has even recorded herself coaching the daughter to say she does not want to go with the dad. The mother and now the daughter are constantly saying that when she turns 14, the daughter can choose to live with the mother full time. The father is beside himself and is basically held "hostage" by the daughter because he feels the daughter can and will choose to live with the mother. I know there have been a few law changes, can anyone help me? Thanks.
