Detained or Deported: What About My Children? What to Do if You Can't Be With Them. Spanish Language Edition. [Interactive version].

Detained or Deported: What About My Children? is a toolkit for families caught between the immigration and child welfare systems and those who assist them. Detained and deported parents struggle to make decisions about what will happen to their children, to participate in child welfare and family court processes that affect their custody rights and to reunite with their children at the conclusion of their immigration case. For too many families, the end result is prolonged separation, severe trauma to children and even termination of a parent's custody rights.



Available in English (interactive or print) and Spanish (interactive or print), the toolkit provides detailed, step-by-step instructions, advice and resources to help parents protect and maintain their parental rights and make well-informed, critical decisions regarding the care and welfare of their children. It is designed for use by parents, government officials, attorneys, service providers, community organizations and family members. (Author abstract)
