An undocumented parent can get deported, even if his or her baby is a U.S. citizen. However, if that person is in deportation proceedings, they may have a defense to deportation (which means they may be allowed to remain in the U.S. and avoid deportation). Of course, this is only a defense to deportation. The person can still be deported, but a young parent with a child born in the United States has a chance with this defense. The defense is called CANCELLATION OF REMOVAL and it is not an application but a defense used in a deportation/removal proceeding before the Judge which is hearing your case as to whether you should leave the country or not. In order to use this defense the parent must meet these requirements, please note this does not mean you qualify for residency or that you will win the case and no one can guarantee that you will qualify for residency through these means. 1. The young person must prove with good documentation that they have lived in the United States continuously for over 10 years. The ten years stop if you have had proceeding with the Immigration Court, been previously deported or have committed certain crimes. 2. You must show good moral character during your life in the United States. That means that you have not had problems with the police, the DMV or Immigration as well as being a productive person assimilated into society who has not depended upon Public Assistance. 3. You must have a qualifying relative; in this case, your U. S. born child will do; but Legal parents and/or a spouse will do also. 4. You must show that the parent's removal would be an exceptional and extremely unusual hardship not to the parent but to the qualifying relative. I just googled "can I be deported even if my child is a US citizen"

Any child that is born in the U.S. is considered a U.S. citizen, therefore they have all of the rights of a U.S. citizen. However, their parents are still considered illeagal and can still be deported, and that may be with or without their child.

Yes, the child is a legal U.S. citizen, mother remains foreign citizen which means you could still get deported. You have the option of taking the child with you back to the foreign country until you fix your situation. If you take him/her out of the U.S. he/she has permission to come back in the country. When your child turns 18, they can "claim" the mother and the mother can become legal.

yes, my husband is Mexican and we have a child, but they still deported my husband

If the child is otherwise entitled to public benefits, they will still be entitled if a parent is deported. There is no added or forfeited benefits to a child of a deported parent.

He can marry the US citizen but he won't gain citizenship through her n he will still b deported.

Any child born on U.S. soil is a natural citizen of the U.S. The mother/father does not attain citizenship merely because of the birth. If they were illegally in the U.S. at the time of the birth, they are still considered "Illegal" and are subject to deportation.AnswerIf the child is born in America, he or she is legally an American citizen. If the parent is deported, the child has to have a financial sponsor. AnswerThen, That American-born child can file immigration papers for his/her parents when he/she is 21 years old. It is a long wait, but right now it seems that it's the only way for the parents to become legal immigrants.

Not a lot. She can still be deported - and separated from her child if the father / government chooses. Either get yourself married or gather up your child and return to your native country.

Yes, a person who owes child support can still be deported. You don't have to be in the same country to pay child support. You can send checks through the mail.

User Avatar

Yes, you can still be a citizen. The US does not revoke citizenship for people who owe child support.

User Avatar

No it can not. my husband and I have 2 children born in the US and I am a US citizen and they still deported him.

User Avatar

If illegal immigrants to the US have a child that is born here, they can still be deported. In these cases deportation is usually taken on a case by case basis.

User Avatar

Illegally, if they are not caught, which is still bad. Legally, they can take a country's oath and register to be a citizen.

Yes, your child still needs to eat, get shoes, go to school, needs a coat in the cold weather.

It wont necessarily prevent them from being deported they can still get deported if the INS has a reason to do so although with them being married to a U.S. citizen their chances of getting a green card and being allowed to permanently stay in the U.S. are increased although not always guaranteed Good Luck and God Bless!!!

All you need to do is, petition the court to modify your child support order.

The President of the United States must have been born an American citizen. It is not necessary to be born in the U.S. to be born a US citizen. For example, a child born to U.S. citizen abroad is still a U.S. citizen by birth. Children born as U.S. citizens abroad have a Birth Cerificate issued by the U.S. State Department.

That depends on your physical development. You may still be a child in your early teens. A child is a person who is between birth and puberty.That depends on your physical development.

Yes. Many nations have a reciprocal agreement with each other regarding child support payments. If you were deported from the US to the EU for example, your country may still enforce your child support payments towards the US.

User Avatar

Yes. While you may still receive parole, it is likely that if you are not a citizen, you will be deported rather than released.

User Avatar

Any illegal can be deported. However, it's different when you're married and have kids. Your kids are immediately legal. You're still not. Go to the U.S. government site and look up what you have to do to become a citizen when you are married.

yes, a crime is still a crime, it doesnt matter when it was commited

User Avatar

Generallythey will serve their sentence and once that is done they are deported. If as an illegal alien you commit a crime you are still tried and sentence just like a citizen.

Yes, if the mother applies for naturalization, the child gets it too if still a minor.
