First right of refusal language is usually included in custody agreements, and essentially mandates that the custodial parent will give the non-custodial parent the first option for child care in situations like an out-of-town trip, or when babysitters may normally be required.
The specific language in your agreement may include other circumstances, but in general, being at work is not an area usually envisioned by the concept.
If you’ve recently begun a night job, your former spouse may want the court to clarify this point for both parties, and you should seek experienced legal counsel to give your case the best chance of prevailing.
