If you are using custom people picker on your form, then follow below steps to achieve what you are looking for:

Keep sharepoint people control hidden on form using Style="display:none"inline property.

Using jquery Once you get the value of user into your custom control, copy it and assign to the default sharepoint control: Ex

var inputUserField = $("div[title='People Picker']"); // This will target to the input box of sharepoint people control.

inputUserField.val(customUserControl.val()); // customUserControl is the custom control you have created.
