A: The only “magic age” in Nevada custody law is 18, at which time (absent a guardianship for incompetency, etc.), no one has any right to determine where the then-emancipated person can live. Until then, the wishes of a “child of suitable age and discretion” are one factor that a court must consider when determining a question of contested custody. For an explanation, links to the relevant statutes, etc., see the materials posted here.
