There's nothing worse than being judged by your worst day. And if it was 5 years ago, and he has been a decent law-abiding member of society, and not a habitual drunkard, this would come off as petty. If there is some matter that makes you want to bring him to court to modify custody, then use that reason. But if this is the only matter, it sounds more than a little vengeful. Don't go to court lightly. And I can tell you that peace between the parents is far better for your child than war.
And I couldn't agree with Mr. Koslow more when he mentions that if this occurred before your child's birth, that it is a non-issue. A baby changes everything for most people. And the irresponsible hotshot might become a responsible parent by it.
