Do you mean can she agree to emancipate you? Even if she's willing to agree to it, the court still has to approve it, which means that you would have to meet all of your state's requirements for emancipation, such as having the ability to fully support yourself.

It is very rare that a Mother wants to give full custody of a child to the Father. To this all a Mother would have to do is choose to sign and give up her rights to the child in court.

As long as the Grandmother is willing and able to take custody of the child.

Yes, she can. All she has to do is press suit to have custody awarded, or convince him to give her custody.

Yes she can unless the father share custody. Then they will go to him.

No, the child has to be born first.

If you have custody of your child and you want to give full custody back to the mother, you need to file new papers with the court. The papers will make the change in custody legal. There does not need to be a trial when both parents agree on what's best for the child unless the mother was found to be unfit.

The courts grant or withhold custody.

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.

No that is up to the judge. The father has no such authority. All he can do is provide truthful and sufficient evidence to the court as to why the mother shouldn't have custody. The court will evaluate the situation and render a decision.If the father wants to give up custody the mother will be the next logical choice of the court. The only reasons why a mother would be denied custody is if she has been declared unfit or she refuses to take legal custody.

It depends on the circumstances. If the father wants custody the court will consider his request once he has established his paternity. If he does not the court may approve permanent guardianship in the grandmother.

If the mother is already the non-custodial parent, then the custodial father already has custody. If the question is meant to ask if the mother can give up her parental rights, then you would need to petition the court.

Of course, but it best to do it using a mediator.

Custody of children cannot be passed around like custody of purses or shoes. This arrangement will have to go through the courts.

User Avatar

Whether or not a mother can lose custody is up to a judge. Judges have the task of establishing custody.

User Avatar

And you are? If the parents were not married the mother has custody until the father can petition for it after he has proved paternity in court. If married you have equal custody. Just living with you does not give you custody. it has to go through court.

If mother has custody, then she has all the say until the girl turns 18. If she objects, then the girl must obey.

In most circumstances the mother gets primary custody.
