No, but the father can get the custody if he proves that the mother has bad habits like alcoholic or consume drugs.

The father would be the favored person to get legal custody if the mother had custody and died unless he was found to be unfit to have custody.

A child does not need to be abandoned by their mother for a father to be awarded full custody. If the father can demonstrate before a judge that the mother is unfit to parent, the judge can award him full custody of the child.

No, the mother is no more entitled to custody than the father. If the father currently has temporary or implied custody, then a custody order must first be established before you can get partial custody or visitation rights. For example, if you moved out and left the child in the care of the father, you forfeited your custody rights until an official custody order has been established.

No, although most courts favor custody to the mother.

If the mother is raising the child and the father has custody the mother should return to court and petition for custody and child support, especially if this is a matter of control. She should consult with an attorney or other legal advocate.

Can a father who has joint custody with the mother stop her from visiting another state with the child

The mother. If she dies, her parents get custody.

I think it depends on how long the mother will be incarcerated for. There might be a hearing giving the father temporary custody. But if the father ever tries to get full physical custody of the child in the future, it might not be good for the mother. However, she can never be refused visitation.

Guardianship, but not custody. The father can still challenge. see links

Yes if she can prove that it would be the the child's best interest to be with her physically. Custody orders can change at any time. If there is a sign of danger from the child being with the father, the mother can gain physical custody.

If father was awarded custody before and his circumstances have not changed, unless the mother's situation has improved dramatically the father has a good chance of maintaining custody.

No, if what is meant is, can a biological mother of a child give custodial rights to her mother without the necessity of court procedure and/or the agreement of the biological father.
