My husbands Court Order on Parenting Time states that the

Resolved Question:

My husband's Court Order on Parenting Time states that the parent who does not have parenting time shall have "..... right of first refusal as to third party strangers....." Who is considered "third party strangers?" Does this mean they give each other the first right of refusal, or do they get to chose. His ex thinks that if she wishes she can give her parents right of first refusal because they are not third party strangers. Is this true?

No, she is wrong - parents have the first right of refusal as to custody/visitation before anyone else. Everyone but the parents are considered 3rd parties - including grandparents.


So, she is very, very wrong.
