I can say, from the perspective of a then 13 year old girl, it was very difficult for me to go back and forth.... my parents did the every week thing for my brother and I....at the time it started, I didnt want to make a choice between them. But, it got to where I didnt feel like I could ever settle in. I lived back and forth for about 1.5 yrs maybe, before I decided on one. I didnt feel like I had a choice but to establish some kind of stability in my life during a time that was so unsettling (teens). At the age of your son, a child learns trust in his parents, security, dependability. I am no child psychologist, but I think at his age, he would adjust well to it. Perhaps ask his pediatricians opinion how it may impact him emotionally. I hope this helps.
