Sometimes people who are splitting up must go to court to have a judge make decisions for them because they aren't able to reach an agreement themselves. Children and teens usually don't have to go to court. However, someone who works for the court might meet with you to find out what is best for you. The court process can take a long time, and your parents may have to go back to court several times. It won't happen overnight.
