If my child is sharing a room with siblings would that be cause to remove her from my custody?

I have been divorced for 10 years. I have sole custody of my 11 year old, who will be 12 in June. My ex-husband has convinced our child that they can appear before a judge at that time and choose with whom she wants to reside. After my child informed me of this I spoke with my ex-husband. He told me if I didn't "let" her move in with him he would file for custody of her. He said that he would use the grounds that she has to share a room with her siblings against me. (I have 4 children that are not his. ) Would that be grounds to remove my child from my custody and grant custody to him?
I suggest calling the local housing department for local regulations on how many are legally permitted to occupy a room. As long as you aren't violating any local occupancy ordinances, that would not be considered endangering a child's welfare.
