What is the name of your state?
PA Right of First Refusal
Just heard this term and have been looking into it.
Anyone know if in PA this is an automatic with custody or if it must be stated in the order? I know it varies from state to state.
Also, can a parent choose to use the ROFR only if THEY will not be with child?
Can they use ROFR if they want someone else to watch child instead of care center or other sitter?

As to PA I son't know if it is automatic, but even if it is I would still include specific language. On your other question I think it is only the parents (may extend to step-parent) b/c what each parent does on their own time is really up to them. There may be a situation out there where the child is 5 and paternal grandma has been watching the child five days a week for most of the childs life that then the judge may say that is the caregiver to stick with but I doubt that a little too. Hope I helped a little.
