It's likely the father will take the child. Being lesbian is irrelevant. being single and lesbian doesnt make you UNSTABLE... as remarried doesnt make you STABLE!...
The father gets custody once proof of paternity is established
Single father has none. Married father is equal to that of the mother, but in application, unenforceable. see links
They can, but the father can challenge it in court.
Of course. Same general custody rules apply for a parent if in the military or not.
Only if a single mother.
Yes, unless there is a custody agreement in order. Neither mother or father has custody legally.
A single father, what does that mean? Are you divorced, ever married to the mother of your child, or is the child adopted by you, or is the mother dead or out of the picture? If your question is "How does a Father obtain residential custody after a divorce or in a paternity case", then I can answer this question. Let me know what your grounds for custody are. What is it about the mother or other parent that makes it harmful for the child to remain in their care?
First off, a single mother, regardless of status, has sole custody. The father has no assumed parental right, so he will be starting from scratch. Can he get custody? There's no more guarantee in this than for any single father. see link

Single mother has sole control and custody, regardless of age, at the time of the birth. Father has a child support obligation, only.
Depends if it is a single trailer or a double-wide

Only if unmarried to the father. Single mothers have sole custody in 49 states by default. This is regardless of whether she's living with the father or not. yes but if theres no legal paperwork then its whoever is holding the child
Yes, and hopefully he will go for Bid Nest Custody.
I live in PA and I am the noncustodial parent. My attorney told me that if my ex-husband dies, I would get immediate custody of my children.
A single mother can as the US does not generally honor foreign father custody orders. Only Cuba does.
Yes, she can. If the father doesn't like it, he can petition the court to modify the custody agreement.
If you're a single father, you have no assumed rights to the child until paternity has been established by a court of jurisdiction. As such that will need to be your first step. Then, if the child is in the custody of the state you can petition for custody to be transferred to you. You should consult with an attorney who specializes in family law who can review your situation and explain your options.
No, he has the same rights as single fathers, none until granted them.
Any age. see links below
Her family until a court rules otherwise. Even if she's living with father.
