What to do if my hisband will not agree to whomever I choose as a babysitter?

My ex and I are going through a custody battle for my 4 year old son. Nothing is established through court yet on who has custody and I think it will end up with joint custody/ We had an awful babysitter before, however I recently quit 1 of my 2 jobs so I stayed home during the day to keep my son and worked at night. Now I’m looking for a first shift job yet every time I have tried to find a babysitter his dad refuses to agree on it. I have found probably 10 babysitters and he won’t accept any of them. What can I do? I don’t want to get in trouble in court but I need a job. Can I take him to a baby sitter that I find even if he doesn’t agree?

Based upon what you have written about if your child is in your care then you have the right to select the baby sitter for the minor during your custodial time and not the spouse. Another option is for you to have the spouse send possible candidates that he approves of so you can interview them and make your own decision as to whether any of his choices warrant being chosen to be your child's sitter.
