The father would need to provide compelling evidence that the mother is unfit and the children would be better off in his custody. That is not likely since the father has no job and therefore cannot support the children.

It is not likely the court would grant custody to a parent with no means to support the child(ren). Unless there are unusual circumstances in the situation. One of the main concerns of the court is the children are adequately provided for in terms of shelter, food, clothing, medical care, etc. As well as being loved and nurtured.

No, you don't, but isn't the greater concern the children having access to their father?

As long as you have the children 51% of the time. Custody is not an issue regarded by the IRS.

Being married or unmarried is not much of a determining factor when it comes to custody nowadays. In order to have custody changed you would need to prove that either your household and parenting abilities are substantially better than the other parent, or that their situation is detrimental to the children. Having a spouse does not necessarily mean that you are better able to care for the children, especially if the other parent has had custody for a significant length of time without the children having any problems in a single parent household.

You need a letter from the other parent giving permission. Otherwise you risk having difficulty either leaving or returning.
