Lawsuit urges attorneys be required in child immigrant cases

In recent years it has become tragically common for unaccompanied children to travel thousands of miles from Central America to the Florida and other places in the U.S. to flee oppression or rejoin family members in America. When they arrive, many are arrested and face deportation hearings -- without the assistance of an attorney. A lawsuit filed in Washington State seeks to change that, and argues children facing deportation have the right to be represented by an attorney when they appear in immigration court.

How do children obtain U.S. citizenship through foreign adoption?

Many couples and individuals in the Miami area seek to expand their family; however, not everyone is able to have children naturally. Therefore, families frequently turn to adoption when conception and a surrogate is not a viable option. While domestic adoptions are possible, these can be difficult to secure. Therefore, international adoptions are frequently used. While these adoption proceedings are common in the United States, parents intending to adopt a child from a foreign nation should understand that an immigrant visa is necessary to allow their child to immigrate to the U.S. and obtain citizenship.
