In Georgia, children very rarely testify in court in divorce or custody cases. What normally happens is the child, probably around the age of 11 or older, would meet privately with the judge in the judge’s chambers. In Georgia, children can express a preference about where they want to live in a custody case starting at the age of 11. Their voice can be heard. By the age of 14, they’re old enough to file what’s called an election where they choose. One of the reasons that it’s important to have an experienced divorce attorney representing you is because different judges have different tendencies and that attorney must know those judges’ tendencies.
