  • Relative (in-family) Adoption

    My wife and I just found out last week that her brother lost his job about two months ago and has asked us if we could adopt his daughter and bring her to America. We told him sure but lets see how his job hunting goes before we adopt her.

    Both parents are willing to sign papers to hand cousty over to us.

    their daughter is only 2 years of age.
    We are both USC citizens

    If we go forward on this were do we start?
    Do we go to our local USCIS office first, or do we need to start the paper work in Thailand do we fill out forms I-600 I-600A I-800 & I-800A or i'm I looking in that the wrong forms?

    Where does her brother lives?

    Does it mean that every one who lost jobs in the US should offer their kids for adoption?

        I would hope giving their child up for adoption is their last resort.

          What is this desparation? Why not just have your own children the natural way?

              It will be hard or rather impossible. Adoption of orphan is considered for approval.

                    Hi

                    Thanks for your comments
                    I agree with sending money over, to a point.

                    Back to my Questin:

                    If we go forward on this were do we start?
                    Do we go to our local USCIS office first, or do we need to start the paper work in Thailand do we fill out forms I-600 I-600A I-800 & I-800A or i'm I looking in that the wrong forms?

                      go to: http://adoption.state.gov/

                      PLEASE get a lawyer or someone who knows what they're doing to help you. If you don't, you will end up with a child stuck in Thailand whose parents have given up their parental rights but cannot come here because immigration will not allow him.
