I'm not sure if you've consulted with a lawyer but that's got to happen right away.  As for the current custody agreement - I take it that was just agreed upon, not ordered or anything?  If I were...

You're smart to take this time for yourself!  You need it and deserve time to process how you're thinking and feeling, before you devote time and energy to someone else.  Having a chance to know...

He is just bullying you.  Which is horribly wrong of him, of course.  But the things he's saying are based on wanting to scare and control you - they are not based on how things actually work.
