Sure, he can take you to court over custody, as custody can always be modified based on a substantial change in circumstances. However, if you and he cannot agree on a 50/50 split and end up in court, it is going to be difficult for him to get a judge to award that type of custody to him. Such a set up means that the parents really have to work together and be cooperative, which may be an issue if you are in court.
If you are in court on a divorce complaint, the court will not hear anything on custody at that time. A new complaint will have to be filed, and the matter put on the calendar for that issue.
