Future Ex Spouse withholding babysitter info


#1

Morning

So currently in my one month out of 12 month separation for nc for divorce , i have been recording and documenting behaviors from my wife.

She has gotten some babysitter to watch my daughter inside my apartment but did not give info on the person in case of emergancy , i have laready told her i dont mind a babysitter but i cant afford it , is this something i should document under bad behaviors post separation? Or is this not worth documenting. With all the behaviors and hostility im getting will all this be a disadvantage to her child custody wise?

Also her conditional green card expires this year and i dont want my daughter to be at risk of anything , currently im still paying for the rent, so so my daughter can be comfrtable.

It’s worth documenting everything in the event there is a custody trial. You will then want your notes as to what happened and on what date.

Unless there is a court order or separation agreement directing otherwise, your wife is not required to give you the name of the person she has obtained to provide childcare during her custodial period.
