I Came to the U.S. for my Child, but now ...

     "Isn't there something you can do for my child?"  I hear the heartbreaking question too often and -- in some cases -- too late.  Foreigners who say they came to the United States many years ago, when their children were infants, and overstayed their period of authorized presence.  Perhaps they entered as tourists or professionals for a few months or a few years ... and never returned home. 
     But now the children are teenagers.  And the teenagers cannot obtain a driver's license in most states.  Despite excellent grades and scholarship offers, they cannot attend college.  If they remain in the U.S. after their 18th birthday, those children also begin to accrue unlawful presence and all the consequences that carries. 
      The solution:  Parents must CALL NOW to try and fix their legal status.  This is like planning to retire.  Don't plan on winning the lottery; save now.  You know the day will come when these children will become adults.  Don't plan on an amnesty law such as the DREAM Act (for more information click here).  For your sake and your children's sake, see an immigration attorney before legalization options run out and application deadlines pass.
