If my husband works offshore, how will custody work with our 4 year old daughter?

Question Details:

My husband works offshore (28 days on and 28 days off). Our 4 year old daughter has never spent a night away from me, and I've always been her primary caretaker in our relationship. I am considering divorce, but I am worried about the custody arrangements. He is a good dad, but being the primary caretaker, I do not want to go 28 days without seeing my child. Would he get to have her on weekends, or would he have her for the entire 28 days home?
