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.

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.
