If you simply take the child, you'll likely be charged with kidnapping. Your best bet would probably be to take her to court for custody on the grounds that she is an unfit mother. The wisest course would be to seek the advice of a qualified attorney.

Yes, he still has rights, though his history of non-involvement can be brought up in custody proceedings. A mother cannot withhold visitation for non-support of a child, nor can she interfere with a visitation court order.

If a mother has no job or a unstable job history can a father go for full custody?

If the mother has interrupted her career more than the father for her children, surely she has the better argument for custody? Custody should depend on how the children are treated, not on how hard the mother found it/finds it to get a job. The father would probably have to work less when they have custody of the children anyway.

Does Wisconsin honor child custody orders from Michigan?

This is interpretive. Generally under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction And Enforcement Act ("UCCJEA") they are suppose to, however this does not preclude other conditions. A mother can run to another state than claim a fear of domestic violence. This than invalidates any orders from another state under the Violence Against Women Act. Unfortunately, the states also have a history of not honoring father custody orders from other states or countries. The was a case of this in Clay County, Missouri. The father with an order from Texas had to kidnap his child and return the Texas.

Could a father get custody of his child if there is a history of mental illness in his family?

Yes. The custody of a child is determined by the best interest of the child. If the court determines that the father is better for the child, he can get custody. Mental illness in his family would probably not even be relevant unless he has mental illness, or if a mentally ill relative lived with him.
