Those working through immigration matters may be struggling with a number of concerns, especially if they have kids. Likewise, the same can be said for many people who are in the middle of a divorce. Sometimes, people find themselves dealing with both of these potentially challenging crises simultaneously. For example, someone’s marriage may be coming to an end while they are also preparing for a custody dispute and struggling with immigration concerns or preparing for how their divorce could affect their immigration status.
All of these issues can be mentally and emotionally devastating, especially when they are taking place around the same time. As a parent, it is imperative for you to understand your legal options and how various immigration matters you may be currently dealing with (or expect to arise) could impact your ability to stay in the country and your relationship with your kids. This can be an overwhelming time in one’s life and many people feel completely out of control, or even feel like giving up. However, it has likely never been more important for many people in this position to stay focused and thoroughly understand their legal options.
By speaking with a legal professional who has a great deal of experience in this area, you may be able to provide yourself with the information and confidence that you will need to push forward. You should stay committed to exploring your legal options not only for your own sake but for your child’s future too.
