  • Adoption of child without legal status

    My sister (a US citizen by birth) and her husband (naturalized US citizen) have been asked to adopt a child. The child's mother is terminally ill and want to make sure the child is left in the care of someone she knows, trusts, and that will care for the child.

    My sister and her husband are willing to adopt and care for this child. They are concerned because the child entered the US without inspection from Mexico.

    Does the possibility exist that the child can be adopted and derive citizenship from the adopting parents?

      Civil immigration law violations do not have legal effects on children under 18, no 3/10 bar there.

      As to adoption, number of prerequisites must be met, such as child's age restriction, certain other requirements and etc.

      This is not a legal advice. I am not an attorney. Consult one if you need.

      Good luck

        you can link to this uscis.gov webpage, go to adoption.
        Or you can visit the local uscis office and collect all the paper work.
