Hardly anyone would dare to question the fact that the best interests of the child shall be the basis of any action by the administrative authorities. Despite this, however, children often find themselves in situations where they do not have access to recognized rights. In our practice we have seen forced separation of Bulgarian children from their parent because he is an immigrant; birth of “illegal” undocumented children in Bulgaria; immigration detention of children; lack of access to medical care and to education; the legal vacuum for unaccompanied refugee children in Bulgaria.
