I need help because I am going away for work overseas. I

Hi. I need help because I am going away for work overseas. I have physical custody of my daughter and joint legal custody with her father. He gets her every other weekend and pays child support monthly. I have asked him to have a conversation about keeping her full time while I'm away for 6 months to one year and he is not responding. I obviously would suspend receiving child support so he can use it for day care. She will remain on my health plan. How do I get him to take responsibility for her so I may do my job?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Virgins. Prince William countyJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: VirginiaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: What do you mean about anything being filed or reported?

I live in California, the state of jurisdiction. My

I live in California, the state of jurisdiction. My ex-husband and I share joint legal custody and I was given custodial custody of our 3 year old son. My ex was ordered to pay child support and standard 1/2 child care (related to work) and 1/2 insurance add-ons. 9 months ago I requested that he start reimbursing me for 1/2 of the babysitter expense. He refused giving me multiple excuses including "you never asked before, you work at night not during the day while the sitter is there, its not a real court order, why don't you take him to daycare instead, etc." Today he finally sent the babysitter $582 which he is describing as back pay. Along with the payment he has stated that he does not approve of the babysitter and that he wants our son to go to the daycare instead (better curriculum and cheaper). He refuses to pay 1/2 of her rate instead making up his own rate and paying her significantly less. She has already been paid in full by me and he owes me over $2000 in back child care. We do have another agreement in our settlement that I pay him $830/month for 5 years for his home equity interest during our marriage. Would it be legitimate to withhold my $830 payment to offset the expense he owes me. At this time that would equate to 2.5 months of payments. If this is appropriate, is there a precedent?
