First both parents would need to relinquish parental rights or have those rights terminated by the court. Judges prefer to place children in the custody of a qualified family member rather than in foster homes, grandparents, adult siblings, aunts, uncles are taken into consideration first. The state's department of social services does an extensive investigation of such situations and submits their findings and recommendations to the presiding judge of the family court. The judge makes custodial decisions based on what is best for the child and not the wishes of other persons involved.
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.
AnswerNo. Only a court can grant custody rights or guardianship rights. The inmate cannot assign his parental rights to his own mother.
If you are the father, the minute that the mother went to jail, you should have gotten custody of your children. If the mother (assuming she is the custodial parent) is incarcerated, then the non-custodial parent should file for an emergency hearing and get custody of the children. State lines are not as important as the welfare of the children.
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
This would be decided in court. Other family members (grandparents, aunt & uncles, etc.) could also petition for custody.
No, but the father can get the custody if he proves that the mother has bad habits like alcoholic or consume drugs.

How often is the father awarded custody of the child over the mother in North Carolina?
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.
The fathers financial responsibility to his children does not end because the courts have decided that custody should go exclusively to the mother or others.
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.
It depends on the state the father lives in, the custody laws of that state would determine if he had a real, legal reason for taking the children for her. Another condition would be WHY she was incarcerated. He would need to see a family lawyer who practices family law in his state.
If the father does not request a DNA test, the mother holds all of the parental responsibility and rights. The mother cannot request child support. The father cannot request custody or visitation.
