Spring Break Child Care

What does your agreement say as to “right of first refusal”?? Ours didn’t mention it, so we were told it doesn’t exist.

Ours doesn’t mention it either. So does this mean I have no right as to whom cares for my son…? I can accept that but if there is anything I can do about it I’d like too.

There is no specific law regarding this. If you and your spouse have an agreement which requires you to notify the other of the whereabouts of the child, then you can enforce that agreement or order through the courts.

maybe you can just ask your ex to let you have that time with your child(ren)? Not the time that your ex would have with them, but the time they would be in child care.

Is my ex required to tell me what his plans are with our son for Spring Break. Our son is 6 and I know my ex will have to work full-time during this time, can I exercise the first right of refusal to have the opportunity to care for our son while he is at work. Otherwise he refuses to tell me who will be taking care of him? Is that legal?
