Can a single father who is going to be sentenced very soon

Customer Question

can a single father who is going to be sentenced very soon has a daughter who is 5 years. The mother died of cancer when the child was 1 year old and the father has been taking care of the child till now. But it looks like the father might be jailed due to tax reasons in the UK. Can the father give custody of the child to a guardian who is not a British national?

Are the Local Authority involved?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, the father is in custody of the IRS officials and the child with him. But he will be sentenced soon since there is a heavy penalty to be paid for tax default. The child cannot be left behind she needs a guardian.
