Yes, depending on the circumstances. Generally, the parent who has custody must be deemed unfit for the court to remove the children from their custody. You should seek advice from an attorney who specializes in custody issues in the jurisdiction where the children reside.

Have sufficient evidence that: 1.) You are a fit parent and/or 2.) The guardian of the children is an unfit parent and then: present the information in front of a judge in a court of law.

No. Losing your job is not in and of itself grounds for losing custody of your child. The parent who wants to gain custody would need to file a motion for custody and convince the court that the custodial parent is unfit and that it would be in the best interest of the child to award custody to the other parent.
