My child just turned 15 and has lived with me full time for his whole life. His father and I have not had a legal custody agreement through the courts just a mutual agreement that we decided together. My child has basically spent every other weekend with his father and several weeks at a time during the summer. Two years ago we tried a different arrangement where he spend two weeks at his dads house then two weeks at my house all while still going to and from school from both households. His behavior has changed and his grades have gone down but his desire to see his father more made me agree to continue to keep it the same. He now is fighting with me to stay with his dad full time saying that now that he is older he can choose where he wants to live. My question is does a child have a right to dictate which parent he can live?
