Planning tools for Immigrant Parents

Immigrant parents are worried that they may be separated from their child because of immigration enforcement, such as an arrest, detention, or deportation.

That’s why last year, NYLAG led the community coalition that designed and helped draft the newly expanded Standby Guardianship Law, which allows parents to choose a “standby guardian” to take care of a child if the parent becomes separated from the child due to an immigration action.
