Father can ask for anything he wants but that doesn't mean he will get it. He has to show a substantial change in circumstances to get more visitation time.

This advice is not meant to create an attorney-client relationship and is a general anwer to the question posed.
If the facts are as you say they are, I highly doubt that more visitation would be awarded. Generally, parents who do not exercise all of the visitation in an existing order do not have a good case to have that visitation increased. In any event, you should consult with a local attorney who concentrates in custody and Family Law matters. On-line advice is no substitute for an in-person attorney consultation.
