It is difficult to get out of DSS custody until you are over age eighteen. It is possible sometimes to have a judge grant a minor emancipation.

Can a underage mother give custody to the father?

Custody is determined by a judge. If the father is not underage, he may be more likely to be granted custody because he has a more likely ability to provide for the child (however underage or not- if he hasn't already been convicted of statutory rape, he may be at this time). An underage mother may plead the judge to give custody to the father, but ultimately it is the judge's decision. If you think the decision was made unfairly, you may be able to appeal it. A mother CAN illegally leave the father with a child, but the mother must permanently leave and faces risk of prosecution... The child may also be put up for adoption if neither parents will agree to take care of it.
