Will it look bad on me for asking for sole physical/legal custody,
Response 1: No, it will not. His sudden interest to be active in your son's life just after your mention of going to Court is a bit suspicious.
or will his past be good enough to show I am being reasonable and only thinking of our son?
Response 2: Yes.
I don't want to ask for it if it will hurt me, but I truly believe due to his father's unpredictability & temper it is in the best interest of our child.
Response 3: You are doing the right thing. You need to get a formal Order from the Court and let him abide by the Order and not show up when it suits him.
