Father and mother never married children born in Florida father now lives in Georgia does he have to legitimize them in Georgia to have them come live with him?

If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children. Their mother has sole legal custody. If the father wants to establish his "parental rights" he will need to establish his paternity where the children are domiciled. Once he has established that he is their father he can request joint custody or a visitation order and the mother can request a child support order if the children are to remain in her physical custody.If the parties want to make the change in custody by consent of the parties he should consult with an attorney to determine how that can be accomplished.If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children.

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.
