Typically you can request a change to an existing custody order when there has been a change in circumstance.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Yes, you can seek to modify custody. Whether the court will grant you more custody and the procedures you may need to undergo are fact specific. I would recommend speaking to an attorney for a more detailed analysis of your situation.
