I know that if you are illegal in the US, they will deport you. If your child is a US Citizen, the child will stay in the US and you will go back to your country of origin. They are trying to fix this problem, because of so many illegal immigrants coming across the border illegally and are having children. Well the children stay in the US and the parents are sent back. * Contact the state's department of children and family services for assistance. Immigration status does not relieve a parent of the right to receive support for their child or receive public assistance if necessary. Deportation is not "automatic" each case is assessed on the individual circumstances. Any child born in the US is a citizen. In such a situation the child is referred to as an "anchor baby" meaning the unlawfully present parent generally is given the opportunity to remain in the US. Children are NEVER taken from a parent simply because the parent is unlawfully present within the US.
Legally, yes. Practically, collecting support from an illegal immigrant might be difficult.
Yes, if they are legal, and the male is a legal immigrant. There are immigrants that are illegal. that does not apply to them, as they themselves could not legally apply for child support.
Child support for illegal children can be difficult. A court order is required to enforce child support payments, and this depends on the parent being a legal immigrant with a legal job to collect from. If a illegal child is born of a US citizen or naturalization, the child is no longer considered illegal.
yes... a immigrant child can receive child support
No, that just means that the child will be a US immigrant. The illegal immigrant will still be illegal.
YES, THE ILLEGAL ALIEN CAN BE DEPORTED. IN MOSE CASES, USCIS DOESN'T DEPORT THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT FOR NOTHING. THERE HAS TO BE A REASON. USCIS CAN ALSO ENFORCE THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT TO WORK HERE FOR SOME PERIOD SO THE OTHER PARTIE CAN BENEFICIATE OF A CHILD SUPPORT. BUT, A US CHILD WILL NOT GIVE YOU RESIDENCE UNTIL HE OR SHE GET 21 YEARS OLD AND DECIDE TO DO IT.
Yes if she is entitled to child support after all of the calculations are done. Immigration status has no bearing on child support.
no. the mom should be a legal resident before she cliams child suport.
If the father gave up all parental rights - then he would not have to pay child support. Plus, if the mother is out of the country and is an illegal immigrant - she would not be a part of the child support system. She would need to be in this country. But, the main things is - if the father "legally" (signed papers) to give up his parental rights, then he is not liable for child support.
No. It's illegal not to pay child support.
No as he can't. see link
AbsolutelyIf the couple are not married and the assumed father did not sign the birth certificate or a declaration of parentage, then a paternity test will be necessary before the court will address the issue. The court can order a paternity test once the child support suit has been filed.The fact that the illegal immigrant may not be paying taxes or is undocumented is irrelevant.
Both of you will be deported
No. The illegal immigrant is returned to their country. The child however, is an American citizen and it is up to the parents to decide whether or not to take the child with them.
Contact your State's child support agency.
We would like to help you with the best answer we can give, but we do need more information. Is the father an illegal immigrant and does is he in contact with the child? Thank you
Omg what did u do!?!
Well, if you are illegal, you don't have access to the courts which can order child support. The parents would have to do it themselves.
No, marrying a US citizen or a permanent resident does not grant the illegal immigrant legal status regardless of whether there is a child involved or not.
yes, specially if you are illegal and living in the US. They will not ask you your "status". you may have a little trouble collecting or getting it ordered if outside the US.
No not an illegal immigrant but a legal one can. * If the couple were legally married the immigrant spouse can request spousal maintenance (alimony). Immigration issues are federal matters and have no bearing on domestic issues such as divorce. child custody/support which come under the jurisdiction of state not federal law.
