Mom. Dad must establish his paternity legally through a DNA test. Once established he can request visitation and custody rights and pay child support if the mother will retain physical custody.
Generally, if married he has custody rights equal to the mother unless she has brought a petition for sole custody in his absence. If he is not married his custody rights must be established by a court order.
The mother assumes automatic custody, unless she is unfit.
Being married or unmarried is not much of a determining factor when it comes to custody nowadays. In order to have custody changed you would need to prove that either your household and parenting abilities are substantially better than the other parent, or that their situation is detrimental to the children. Having a spouse does not necessarily mean that you are better able to care for the children, especially if the other parent has had custody for a significant length of time without the children having any problems in a single parent household.

No. Custody must be granted by a court order unless the parents are married. If you are unmarried and want to give temporary custody of your children to your "fiance" it must be done through the court. You haven't mentioned whether the "fiance" is the father of the children.

If married, and not living in Kansas. If the mother had a custody order, and first right of refusal is not declared in the orders, he will need to file a custody challenge against her parents.

The father would need to petition the court in the jurisdiction where custody was determined for a modification in the custody order, then be prepared to present a compelling case why it would be in the best interests of the children for him to assume custody. It would be in your best interests to have expert legal representation when challenging a custody order.
