Can I get the custody order modified?

Q: My ex-husband has custody of our 4-year-old son. However, since the order went into effect December 9th, 2017, he works two jobs and has no real time with our son. Our son is either with his girlfriend, other family members or in school. I get three weekends out of the month for visits, every Thursday 8pm to Sunday 2pm I want joint custody or sole custody, if possible, whereas he could legally physically live with me and his two sisters and my ex would actually have more time with him if we just gave him those three weekends a month but starting from Friday to Sunday due to school scheduling and such. We communicate failry well, well enough at least but he isnt being cooperative regarding information about our son and it's a bit childish. He misses his sisters, my daughters, and it would be in his best interest to be with them and to be taken care of by his parent and not pawned off on others. Is this real sufficient? Also, I've recently gotten into a 3 bedroom apartment via voucher, I'm on public assistance and I'm in school full-time during the day and I'm out before they get out of school.

A: One would need more of the background to answer this question responsibly. Since the order was just done recently, one would particularly need to know why you agreed for him to get custody - and what's changed on your end warranting the modification.
