Orphan Definition

For Immigration purposes, a child is considered an Orphan because of the death or disappearance of, abandonment or desertion by, or separation or loss from, both parents.

The child of an unwed mother or surviving parent may be considered an orphan if that parent is unable to care for the child properly and has, in writing, irrevocably released the child for emigration and adoption.

The child of an unwed mother may be considered an orphan, as long as the mother does not marry (which would result in the child having a stepfather) and as long as the child’s biological father has not legitimated the child. If the father legitimates the child or the mother marries, the mother is no longer considered a sole parent.
