A. Hi,
If your spouse and you are in the middle of separation proceedings, then the Guardians and Wards Act provides that children above 9 years must be heard when it comes to their preference of where to stay. However, if you are not separating, then the child is under your guardianship till she is 18 years old, and you may take a decision of your choice which you believe is in her best interests.
