Would a court consider granting joint custody to your ex even though you live in different states?

Yes. The long distance visitation schedule would be followed. Depending on the age of the child(ren), the court will award based on who is more stable and able to provide for the child. The court will also consider who is more able to execute visitation. The custodial parent will be responsible with ensuring the child receives visitation as scheduled, regardless of the state in which the two parties and child(ren) resides. == == It's all in the "best interests of the child" for more details visit steveshorr.com

Most states have no laws granting fathers any rights, so mother has it be default. Only Arizona has a law granting any assumed rights. States like Arkansas expressly says the mother has sole custody and control. see link below

No, only parents or grandparents are mentioned in the custody rights laws of the different states and not always grandparents either. It's up to the court when you apply for custody.

Virginia is different from most states where an unmarried mother automatically has legal custody of her child and the father must establish his paternity legally. In Virginia there is no presumed custody. Unwed fathers and mothers must go through court to obtain legal custody.

A woman can lose custody for any number of reasons. Most (all?) states only consider the best interests of the child when considering which parent should receive custody.
