We have a hearing next month to change the divorce agreement. I am seeking to have RIght of FIrst Refusal incorporated, then my ex would have to let me watch our son. However, it seems changing the divorce takes a lot. Her lawyers agues that there has not been a material change in circumstances to warrant the change. However, I am now on terminal leave and officially retire 1 Feb 2011. Terminal leave means I have leave saved up so I do not have to work anymore, up to retirement. I'd be happy with the court simoply allowing me to be my son's daycare. Do I have to push for Rught of First Refusal to get this or can I merely ask the court to grant me right to be his daycare. It seems that trying to "change" the divorce requires a much greater burden of proof and effort, even though I think retiring is pretty significant change of circumstances. Would it be less work to get the court to just let me be his daycare, or is it all the same anyway. EIther way, my ex refuses to let me be his daycare, but what is the easiest way to get the court to grant?
