Recently signed executive orders have left illegal immigrants concerned about being detained by immigration agents or being deported. The more distressing issue has become what happens to the children of the deported parents. Children born in the U.S. are given automatic citizenship and may remain. While we hope that the child is placed with relatives it is not uncommon to hear of families who were left out of decision-making when it comes to the care and custody of their children. Children of detained and deported parents may end up in foster care and it is often difficult to regain parental rights. In other words children of deported parents can be put in foster care for long periods of time and even end up being put up for adoption.

Please contact the attorneys at Dunne, Dunne & Cohen, LLC to discuss how to protect your children in the event of the above.
