My ex has all of a sudden decided he wants joint custody of

Customer Question

My ex has all of a sudden decided he wants joint custody of our little boy he has never had any interest before we have been split for 15mths.
I have said he can have him every Sunday I have never said he couldn't only when he smashed my car at Xmas last year. Our little boy does love his dad but they never really bonded as he found he can't cope/deal with him on his own!
Is there a chance he could get joint custody hearing in mind little man is only 4??
