Gennarini v. Gennarini

In Gennarini v. Gennarini, 2 Conn. App. 132, 137, 477 A.2d 674 (1984), the Court stated: "Whether the child's preferences and feelings as to custody and visitation are a significant factor in the court's ultimate determination of the best interest of the child will necessarily depend on all the facts of the particular case, including the child's age and ability intelligently to form and express those preferences and feelings. . . . "Even when information regarding the child's preferences is elicited, it may be of questionable accuracy. A child caught up in the maelstrom of family strife may produce, to the psychologically untrained eye and ear, distorted and thus misleading images not only of the child's parents but of the child's own feelings . . . ."
