>>>>>I would like to believe this because he has never done anything malicious to me, but I know I would be a fool to take his word for it and hope he goes through.

You certainly would, and are already overlooking an important aspect of his character that proves that he likely WILL try to pull a fast one...

>>>>>The custody arrangement for the time being is that I have my son monday-friday and my husband has him friday-sunday afternoon. Often he will ask his parents to babysit on one of the days, so he can go out with friends, or he will call and say he needs a break after just 1 day, yet claims that he spends just as much time with our son as myself.

And then...

>>>>>He said he wants 60/40 custody with unlimited visitation for me.

He doesn't utilize the time he has now, but he wants the larger portion of custody????

>>>>>I am going to see if I qualify for legal aid since I have no income,

Definately. Check into it like yesterday.

>>>>>My husband said he will agree to 50/50 custody as long as I do not go for any spousal support. He threatened that if I do, he will contest and try to get full custody of my son, even though I have always been, and still am the primary caregiver. Could that even be considered by the judge?

Likely not. Being a stay home parent puts you more to the front of a custody battle, even though you will now have to go to work. But the judge sees it as you are the parent the child is most accustomed to being with.

Spousal support is not always a given. It is mostly for long-term marriages of 10 years or more. Sometimes however, they do grant it for 5 year marriages. Depends on the circumstances, location and judge. Child support would however be a given. As for the joint account, half of what is in it is YOURS. Do not let him pull the wool over your eyes. Fight for your portion. You may not get the full inheritance either. Many states are community property, meaning once you mingled those funds with his, you get HALF of what remains...half the equity in the house.
