Long Island Family Lawyers Draft Guardianship Plans for All Contingencies

Effective assistance for undocumented parents of U.S.-born children

Parents have always had to consider who would care for their children if the parents themselves could no longer do that. Death or disability can strike anyone at any time. But in the current political climate, undocumented immigrant parents must also consider how removal proceedings against them could impact their U.S.-born children. If the uncertainty of your status makes you anxious for your children, Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C.  can help. We are the largest law firm on Long Island dedicated exclusively to family law. Having fought thousands of custody battles in Long Island family courts, we know every custody issue inside and out, and we can draft a guardianship plan to fit your specific circumstances.

Planning for temporary or long-term separation from your children

In a country where about 4.5 million children who are American citizens have at least one undocumented parent, it is inevitable that many foreign-born parents of U.S.-born children will be processed for removal. If that happened to you, what would become of your children?

We can help by drafting guardianship plans that cover a variety of contingencies:

  • Who picks your children up from school if you are suddenly unavailable
  • Who will take custody of your children while you are detained or after you are deported
  • Who will assist your children in relocating to your country of origin if you desire

Unfortunately, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) now targets law-abiding residents who are out-of-status, meaning they’ve lost their immigration status because of a visa violation. Act now to protect your children’s future.

Let us prepare you for the worst-case scenario

For unauthorized immigrants living in the United States, ICE is an agency they have reason to fear. But you must not be so frightened that you put off seeking help. As your attorneys, we have a strictly confidential relationship with you, and the government cannot compel us to reveal your identity, your status or any other facts about you.

If you are detained or deported without making guardianship arrangements, your children could be put into the state’s overcrowded and underfunded child welfare system. Let us help you put enforceable legal protections in place so that someone you know and trust can care for your children when you can’t.

A guardianship plan allows you to name a person you trust to care for your children if you become unable to. Trust Bryan L.
