"At 9 and 11 they are definitely old enough to be heard by the judge and have some say in what their best interests are."

I disagree. Your average 9 and 11 yr old doesn't much understand what is in their best interest, which is why they'd prefer cake for breakfast, skipping school and watching cartoons all night.

If the parent feels it's in the child's best interest not to have parenting time with the other parent, the parent better have more to present in court than "cause my kid said so". And whatever this "more" is, this is what needs to be addressed in court; it is those circumstances that formed the child's opinion that will make the case, not the child's opinion itself.
