Normally child custody sides with the Mother not the Father.
How often is the father awarded custody of the child over the mother in North Carolina?
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.
In the United States an unmarried mother has legal custody of her child unless and until the father establishes his paternity in court and requests custody and/or visitations.

The mother. If she dies, her parents get custody.
Not if the mother still have custody. He better have a good explanation to tell the judge why he has not seen his child for a year. If he has a good reason they would probably start with visitation. Full custody he can not get unless the mother is unfit.
Not if the person has a court ordered custody agreement. If no visitation/custody order is in place, it is at the discretion of the person who has custody of the child.
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.
