Ohio no longer has a minimum age. It is illegal to have a child sign any document expressing their preference of a parent to live with. Only the Court Judge or Magistrate determines whether a child is of sufficient maturity to make a rational choice. This is done in the chambers of the Judge/Magistrate and without parents or lawyers.
