Answer Having a student visa means that you are legally in the U.S. They could change their student visa to a working visa (H1. After that they can apply for… a green card and later apply for citizenship. Getting a green card can take years. Only after getting a green card they will be able to apply for citizenship. The process can become much easier if that person gets married with an American citizen. Then, it will be a question of months.
You can't adopt an older sibling. You could sponsor them. Adoptionis for minor children to be cared for by an adult.
I dont believe there is a legal age to become engaged only married, which is 16 with parental consent and 18 without.
Technically, in the law's eyes, it is said that once you hit the age of 15, unless there is a completely good reason as to why you cannot, you can have someone fight for you i…n court to see who can become your legal guardian. Of course, you'd have to state this to the judge, and therefore, you have to say that you need to talk to the judge. Anyhow, that's how it is. 15-17, that's when you can. Moreso for the people 16 or 17. But when you're 17, you can technically 'run away' from your home under certain circumstances in which I don't know too much about. Anyways, good luck!
If neither of the child's parents are able or willing to care for the child in a safe, loving environment, the grandmother can petition the court for custody of the child. You… will need to retain an attorney, and you will also have to provide proof that the parent(s) are not either willing or able to care and provide for the child. You can also petition for the court to award child support to be paid to you by one or both parents if you do become the legal guardian of the child, as well as requesting that they maintain medical insurance on the child.
Not very easy at all. An individual over 18 is considered to be an adult under the law and responsible for their own actions - in other words - not in need of a guardian. UNLE…SS they have been adjudged to be legally incompetent to carry on their own affairs. You would need medical/psychiatric/psychological testimony as to the medical/mental condition of the person, accompanied by the testimony of doctors and/or social workers to try and establish this fact before the court. Only then, could you be considered as a candidate for legal guardian, and then, ONLY AFTER you qualify as a 'fit' person to carry out the affairs of the incompetent person.
The legal guardian of a child in a case must be at least 35 years and must be a working person.
No state in the US has never made dating the subject of any laws. Sexual activity has specific laws that vary throughout the world. The age of consent is between 16 and 18, s…o I would not go below that.
Age of Majority in Mississippi is 21. If an adult child has an incapacity limiting their ability to take care of their own affairs, than yes.
You must be 35 years of age and be born within the United States.
In the State of Nebraska if you are someones legal guardian can the 18-year-old move out of their legal guardians home home?
Yes. An 18 year old is an adult and can live/move where he/she wishes.
It depends on local legislation, though a guardian usually has to be an adult.
There are a few requirements to become someones legal guardian. You must first obtain guardianship papers from your County Clerk or Probate court. Fill those papers out comp…letely, return them to the court, and pay any fees associated with filing them. The court will investigate your petition, and you must prove that said person needs a guardian, that they are incapable of making decisions for themselves. The entire process could take a couple of months.
The legal drinking age for alcohol in the United States is 21. There are some states that appear to allow consumption at home from the age of 19, but this is disputed by court…s and has not been formalised.
