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.
the father gets the custody of the child if the mother dies
Basically it means getting to be the legal guardian of children. For example, if a couple divorces and the mother is given custody of the children, she then becomes the children's legal guardian and they will usually live with her, often with visits from the father.
No, but the father can get the custody if he proves that the mother has bad habits like alcoholic or consume drugs.
As unfortunate as this may be it is possible for the father to get custody of the baby, but not full custody unless the mother is proven unfit. Because reguardless of what happened between the couple the father is still the father of the child, and the father still has his rights as a father to be a part of his child's life.
I believe that the Mother should always have full Custody.. After the father is a convicted felon

How often is the father awarded custody of the child over the mother in North Carolina?
It is not a grant. A married couple has legal custody of their child by virtue of being legally married. An unmarried mother has sole custody of her child, since there is proof that she gave birth to the child, until the father establishes his paternity legally. Once he has established his paternity the father can request custody and visitations.
In the United States an unmarried mother has legal custody of her child unless and until the father establishes his paternity in court and requests custody and/or visitations.
Not without the permission of the child's biological mother. When a couple are not married and there is not a custodial order from the court, the law presumes that the mother has sole custody of the child in question.
No, although most courts favor custody to the mother.
If the mother is raising the child and the father has custody the mother should return to court and petition for custody and child support, especially if this is a matter of control. She should consult with an attorney or other legal advocate.

The mother. If she dies, her parents get custody.
I think it depends on how long the mother will be incarcerated for. There might be a hearing giving the father temporary custody. But if the father ever tries to get full physical custody of the child in the future, it might not be good for the mother. However, she can never be refused visitation.

Yes if she can prove that it would be the the child's best interest to be with her physically. Custody orders can change at any time. If there is a sign of danger from the child being with the father, the mother can gain physical custody.
