Can a father be granted full custody if he has provided all financial assistance to the child and mother but the child resided with the mother while the father resided out of the country?

Yes, the father CAN get custody (meaning, it is within the realm of possibilities out of the thousands of cases pending). Of course, such decisions are not made with one sentence of the "facts" one person shares so whether it will happen in your case is a different question.

Many factors play into a determination of custody. It is possible for a father to get custody under those circumstances, but it would depend on many factors. Custody is a complex issue and cannot be answered from a one sentence question. I suggest you speak with a family law attorney who can get all of the needed information and then provide you the options.
