Ok, what I am trying to achieve is that instead of my estranged and her boyfriend dumping the kids off on some un-named individual or the minor son of the boyfriend3(and hiding the fact of who they left the kids with) they contact me first and give me teh chance to take care of teh kids. Case in point: Last week the kids missed 3 days of school because there was a funeral in her home town. I could have taken the kids to school and picked them up. however i do know that doing that would have forced her to add me to the school paperwork for pickups.
so what would this right or whatever I am asking for be called in court?
