Custody of child born out of wedlock

This is not for me, but I would like to know. If a man and woman have a child together, out of wedlock and after 2 years they split up and share 50/50 custody with the child, no child support including. What are the fathers rights, we are confused looking at NRS 126.031 -- Does he have custodial rights, as a good father that wants to be in his daughter's life. Is it worth fighting for, does he have these rights to fight and keep it at 50%. He is on her birth certificate and carries his last name and she wants him to sign a petition were he gets her 2 weekends a month now and he wants 50% custody. Should we get a lawyer and fight her for this or does she have a lot more rights then he does.
