QUESTIONS

  • The issue of Right of First Refusal has come up. Can the Right of First Refusal be customize to fit our needs, or does AZ law always require one parent to notify the other parent when they can not watch the child during their scheduled time, even if it is only for an hour or two. Can the plan be written stating that if the absents is longer than 8 hours than the Right of First Refusal applies, but if the time is less than 8 hours the parent has the right to contact the grandmother to watch our child? The grandmother has been involved in our child's life since birth. Custody is joint. Thanks

Is there a time limit for a landlord to notify tenant of non paym
