US immigration law may allow deported parents' kids to be adopted

No one in California or elsewhere wants to lose a child under any circumstances. However, many immigrants who came into the country through illegal means found themselves separated from their children at the border. A number of those parents were even deported from the country while their children were kept in the United States. Now, U.S. immigration law may allow those children to be put up for adoption.

Though there was an order issued to reunite children with their parents, over 200 children still remain in custody. Now, there is concern that those children could potentially be put up for adoption without notifying their parents. This type of situation is not new as there are a number of instances of such adoptions taking place in the past.

One woman gave her account of being separated from her child in 2015. The then 2-year-old girl was given to a foster family, and her mother and her mother's attorney did not even know the proceedings were taking place. Of course, these custodial proceedings -- then and now -- differ from state to state, and immigrant parents may have a difficult time reuniting with their children.

In such cases, it can prove immensely helpful to have a legal advocate. California immigration attorneys can help concerned parents navigate the complicated areas of U.S. immigration law necessary to work toward getting their children back. The process may be long and hard, and parents may have even more concern if they are facing deportation proceedings or have already been deported. Obtaining the necessary help may be invaluable during such a difficult time.
