My daughter is 16 almost 17 we went to court a month ago. She went on stand and said she wants to live with me. The judge ordered a guardian ad-litem. I thought there was a certain age the child can make a decision what parent she wants to live with?.

It depends on the circumstances. If there are circumstances the judge believes are of concern, they may make the decision to do this.

here in Australia, they pretty much won't even entertain a custody issue in court for a child this age unless there are extreme circumstances.
