Talk with your lawyer. If you don't have one, search for one here on AVVO.
This response is only a basic answer to your question and is not intended to be legal advise. It is your job to hire an attorney and to discuss the specifics of this question with him or her. I am not giving you specific legal advise and there is no attorney-client relationship created by my answer to your question. The choice of an attorney is an important decision that you must make and that choice should not be made upon adverting alone.
If the ex wants you to be the custodial parent and you are ready to be a parent then get a lawyer and get it done. Quit talking to the ex and let your lawyer explain how to work out all of the other issues.
This really boils down to whether you are ready to be the parent who takes charge of raising your child.

Goodness, but there must be more to this story. You will need to file a Motion to Modify in Suit Affecting the Parent Child Relationship, and either serve your ex, or obtain a duly notarized Waiver of Citation. It is unlikely for the Court to condone one party giving up access and support -- nor do you want to do so, as our State mandates that each parent has the responsibility to support the child financially. Talk to a good lawyer, and do the right thing.
