In order to receive custody, you must prove the father to be un-fit. The court most definitely considers the financial stability of the parent seeking custodial status. If the parent seeking custodial status has had troubles survivng, the court WILL NOT find the judgment in the best interest of the child, regardless of gender. There must be severe circumstantial events for a court to change a contested custody case. The process would be very difficult, expensive and lengthly.

Certainly. The court is concerned with the overall welfare of the child(ren), not just the financial situation. If one parent is seen to be more nurturing, stable, etc. that weighs more heavily than who has the "most bucks". If the custodial parent has lesser means of supporting the children, the court will apply that, along with other factors, in determining the amount of child support. A parent obtaining full custody does not relieve the other parent of financial obligations.
