Will having a DUI on my record impact my child custody case?

I'm about to go to court with my ex for custody of my son. We both want full custody and I feel like I have a good shot at it but I have a DUI on my record from 4 years ago. My son is 2, so it was before he was born. Will this hurt my chances?
