Can a parent get sole custody even if the court ordered joint custody if the non-custodial parent hasn't been in the kids' lives for 5 years?

You would have to go back to court. Have your attorney file for a modification of custody order. Your ex would be notified through his attorney and would have to answer your allegation.
