At what age can children decide which parent they want to live with?

There is no magic age. Once children are close to teen years their opinion may be considered but the court will consider many other factors. Your attorney should not speak with your children about this but can go to court and get a Guardian ad Litem (an attorney for the children) appointed for them, who will be able to meet with the children and find out their preferences.

Some Common Divorce Questions

Do I need to get divorced in the state (or country) in which I was married? No. You actually would file a divorce in the state in which you (or your spouse) are residing at the time of filing. In Missouri you (or your spouse) need to reside in the state for 90 days prior to filing. Find a family law attorney in the state (and county) in which you reside to initiate the process for you. ยท
After I file a divorce how long until I can be divorced? The State of Missouri requires that 30 days must pass after the filing of the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage before a judge can sign the Judgment and grant the divorce. In most courts in Missouri if you have an attorney your divorce can be finalized without you having to appear in court, as your attorney can file everything and then get the judge's signature on everything for you.
