Thank you for your question.
In Scotland, children adulthood at the age of 16 for most purposes. For that reason it's very u likely, and I may say almost unheard of, that a court would make any order contrary to the wishes of the child.
In other words the child can as good make up his or her own mind who he or she wants to stay with.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
