The Child as a Witness in Dissolution Proceedings

"Clients often ask whether their child will have to choose which parent he or she wants to live with after the divorce. As with most legal questions, the answer is—It depends. While a child is not required to express to the court his or her preference or to provide any input regarding custody or visitation, there is also nothing in the Family Code that prohibits a child from expressing an option regarding custody or visitation."
