What is the state legal age on chooseing who to live with, the father or the mother, I have gotton so many different opinions from the internet to the courts, it seems that if a child is above the age of 14 they pretty well know where or who they want to reside with, but it seems the family court system will stull that choice for as long as they can. WHen a child tells the people who are suppose to help that they need help why is it that they won't believe what is being said because the parent has money and athority. Money doesn't bring happiness, and alot happens behind closed doors. It took me a whole two days to make the magistrate courts find custody papers from 2000, by that time the father of my son had already took him for a visit and gotton temp. orders to keep my son, 9 months now fighting to get him back, can you go to jail in family court for contempt, because its my visit now and he refuses to go back and I am not makeing him, at 15 years old he knows right and wrong, who raised him, and where he wants to be, I refuse to hear my son threaten to kill hisself, that is a serious statement and teen kids make extreme decisions all the time, I pray to not go to jail for fighting for my sons rights.....

Yes u can be held in contempt in family court. They can also get you for kidnapping if you do not return your son when it is his fathers turn to have him. We are kinda going thru the same thing with my husbands children. They have told authorities on numerous occasions that they wanna live with us and our son also told authorities about "wrong doings" going on where he lives and they told him there was nothing that they could do about it which was complete bs. Im not sure where u live but if its Grafton you need all the luck you can get. This town is a corrupt as they come. But, on the other hand Beth Longo usually sides with the mother. Just dont do or say anything to piss her off..Dont get mad and yell at the father just remain calm because if u dont Longo will turn on u in a split second...So good luck with your son
