Help a Mother See Her Children After Five Years Apart

Posted January 16, 2019

Our organization is assisting a mother who has not seen her children in five years. She had shared custody of them in North Carolina, but she was deported to Mexico and the custody order only allows her children to visit her in the United States. The children are currently living with their abusive father's partner, who does not have any legal custody over them. Their father was deported 1.5 years ago, and the children are still in North Carolina and do not have contact with their mother. The mother needs help to modify the custody order so she can see her children after many years apart and so they can be cared for by someone who has legal custody.
