Staying in the United States

Staying in the U.S. is the go-to option for a lot of families going through deportation. Emotionally, it is incredibly hard to be separated by your family, however, if you have other family or close friends here, and/or you have siblings, it can be a lot easier. 

Mainly, what's needed for staying in the U.S. can be found on the 'How To Prepare Page', which can be accessed through the button below. 

The main goals are making sure you have some sort of arrangement for who will be taking care of you, assure that all of your personal records are up to date, and make sure you have some sort of plan with your parent/current guardian on what will happen directly after they are detained. 

 

Along with this, it's important to get your passport up to date, if it isn't already. Once deported, your parents will no longer be able to come to the U.S., so for you to visit them, you will need to go to their country. The issue is, for a child with undocumented parents to get/update their passport, it can be quite difficult. For information on how to do that, click the button below.
