The mother and I (never been married, however our child was legitimated at the time of birth) live about 40 miles from each other. How likely is it that I will be able to get approved for Right of First Refusal in order to maximize my time with my child outside the limited visitation I am currently getting? (psych exam, drug test, anger management, and criminal record are all clean reports with the exception of a DUI less safe in 2007-misdemeanor). I have mediation tomorrow afternoon and would like to know if this is a realistic expectation. The mother has made it clear her intent is to exclude me from my daughters life because things did not work out with the mother and I.
