DOES A CHILD’S PREFERENCE PLAY A ROLE IN CUSTODY

If a judge decides to talk with the child, the judge usually will do so in private, in the judge’s chambers rather than in open court. Generally, the parents are not in the room when the judge talks to the child, although the parents’ attorneys might be. In some cases, the judge may appoint a mental health professional, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, or social worker, to talk to the child and report to the court.
