Can a Pennsylvania resident adopt an adult illegal immigrant?
No. First, adoption is a legal process governed by State laws.
You cannot petition the Court to make an illegal act legal, or in
this case, to ignore the illegal resident status of a person but
approve a legal adoption. As another example, in small claims court
if Person A sues Person B because Person B sold Person A "bad
cocaine", the Judge would dismiss the case because it is illegal to
buy cocaine. The Judge could also, as a representative of the Law,
report both parties for cocaine use.
Second, adoption is typically reserved for minors, under the age of 18 years old. It may be possible to adopt an adult with severe mental impairment, but that is typically made into a Guardianship, not an adoption.
No. An adult cannot adopt another adult.
if you can actually adopt him yea
The citizen CAN adopt the illegal, but that adoption CANNOT be used to make the adoptee LEGAL. Only when the adoption is completed BEFORE the adoptee turns 16 years old will the adoptee be able to receive any immigration benefit.
Yes, an immigrant can adopt a US child. However, it is uncommon. Most of the time, US natives adopt an immigrant child.
With all of the red tape and paperwork you will need to go through, it is not likely, especially if you plan to adopt from outside the US. Odds are you'll end up being deported yourself.
The biological father have to give up his parental rights or this will not be possible. If he is an illegal immigrant he can still have paternal rights in the US. Once his rights are terminated you can apply for adoption.
yes i want to adopt a baby from pakistan and i am resident of spain
his majesty the emperor of the united states says No. & it does not matter if the illegal US Govt. in operation says it is, in my book and in my court the answer is NO! vote for me as president on nov. 4 2008. heck with the well known media frenzy candidates they are all BILDERBERG PERSONAL.
Yes. According to alllaw.com, it is possible, but difficult, and can only happen under very specific circumstances: The person would have to be a child. The child would have to live with you, in your legal custody, for two years before you file the visa petition. You would most likely have to be a U.S. citizen. The process is complicated and will probably require an immigration attorney. (see alllaw.com/articles/nolo/us-immigration/adopt-undocumented-illegal-immigrant-get-green-card.html)
Yes you can Yes you can
No. You have to provide proof of citizenship, since an illegal cannot effectively produce this. They would not be able to adopt and would get deported. =] I wish more illegals would try to adopt! =]
Yes, you can adopt an illegal alien. The parents of the child have to give up all parental rights over the child.
No. Illegal immigrants regardless of their age are not eligible for adoption. In most instances even a legal immigrant minor already within the US cannot be adopted unless his or her parents have had parental rights terminated or the minor has been declared an orphan, an asylee or a refugee.
NO because aliens are fake and they are illegal.
You can't. Since you married an illegal, she and her daughter are not allowed on U.S. soil. Usually she would have to get a visa, and then go through the whole entire process of becoming a citizen. Once she has her visa, she is allowed to bring her daughter with her; you can adopt once your wife is a legal U.S. citizen and she is recognized here. The reason you cannot adopt her daughter now… Read More
If you're illegal you're not a citizen -- not hard really
No. In the US adults regardless of their citizen status cannot be adopted. A legal immigrant can be sponsored by a US citizen for permanent residency and citizenship.
You cant adopt it because when try to adopt something from Texas its illegal unless you wanna pay 2,000,000,000 dollars
Not legally possible, but would be a beautiful thing if it could happen.
I married an illegal immigrant in July, 2003. As a result I cannot foster children or adopt them. I probably will not get custody of my neice that I have applied for. I cannot get health insurance because his income cannot be counted partially because he is not allowed to work, partially because he is paid cash. I worry every night when he is later than usual from work that the immigration has picked him… Read More
I think that in any state you must be 18 years of age to adopt a child. However, your state may have laws about the requirements you need to adopt a child.
yes you can although it's illegal in egypt to adopt but some people smuggle kids to be adopted in other countries
In 1856 Elizabeth Blackwell adopted Katherine Berry, an Irish immigrant orphan
You can't adopt an older sibling. You could sponsor them. Adoption is for minor children to be cared for by an adult.
No because the alien has to have a U.S. citizenship first!!!!!!!!
Yes, they can. Anyone can adopt a child if they have no place to live and are currently enrolled in a school. Is the child a US citizen? If not,regular INS procedures will have to be followed to establish his residency status. Simply because he is a child does not guarantee he will be allowed to stay in the US even though he has a relative who is a citizen. If he is a citizen… Read More
You are not able to adopt a sand cat. They are wild cats that are protected by their resident countries' laws. However, some organizations may allow you to make an honorary adoption of a sand cat by making a donation.
Can an American citizen adopt a legal immigrant and if so would that child get citizenship and or a green card?
Yes, but the child will have to follow steps in immigration procedures and apply for naturalization later.
Yes. Same-sex marriage was legalized in Pennsylvania on May 20, 2014, pursuant to a federal court decision striking down Pennsylvania's ban on same-sex marriage. And, there is no explicit prohibition of joint adoption by same-sex couples. A same-sex partner is permitted to adopt the other partner's child and single gay persons are also permitted to adopt.
If married to an immigrant whom is waiting on her green card is it possible to adopt her illagitament son?
Yes ==but there isa more money in not adopting the kid. I would think it over. STATED BY AUTHOR
Yes it is possible. As long as their criminal record is clean, legal immigration status can be validated, you're ok.
Can anyone clarify the question? To my understanding, an adult cannot be adopted, regardless of citizenship status... An adult can not be adopted. Perhaps the questioner is thinking of sponsor?
Loss of rights without signing a waiver of those rights. I married almost 4 years ago. I cannot adopt, foster, or have custody of children. I cannot get health insurance because he is not paid by checks, pay taxes, or have proof of income. I could not get into student housing because he has no ssn#. The process turns you into an illegal immigrant, too. At least I can sympathize with some of what he… Read More
It is illegal to remove the scent sac from a skunk in order to domesticate it. You cannot harbor a wild animal
No. The adoption process is only applied for someone 18 or older to adopt a minor (and rarely an adult, who must be a US legal resident/citizen). What you may be thinking about is "family re-unification", a part of the 1965 immigration law that allows a citizen's family to apply for visas to be reunified in the US. However, the citizen must be 18 or older in order to start a family re-unification process. That… Read More
I adopted a child. The main reasons you should not adopt is A: The adoption may be illegal for one party or the other. B: The child may have special needs that the adoptive parents are not capable of providing for.
The Quakers experiences in England led them to adopt which policy in their new colony of Pennsylvania?
The Quakers were persecuted in England so their colony promoted religious tolerance.
If they ADOPT a new law, but the Governor has not yet signed it, it is referred to as a Bill.
Because it could not adopt the same features as the other person. It isn't good for health. And it can harm the person and society. :)
Can a us citizen adopt a 19 year old nephew from Honduras who is an illegal alien living in the united states?
You can go ahead and adopt- immigration status is not something that would prevent the adoption. If you want to adopt merely to give the nephew legal status- then no, the adoption would do NOTHING. (the cutoff age for giving immigration status is 16).
Some are probably already trained, plus, some dogs from pet stores may have come from an illegal puppy farm.
No that would be selling your child which is illegal. An adoption have to go through a agency with all the legal papers filled in to be valid.
You file a petition in the court with jurisdiction (usually a family/civil court) in the county and state where the child is a resident. Please be advised, when a person wishes to legally adopt their new spouse's child the biological father or mother must be deceased or voluntarily relinquish his or her or have had parental rights permanently terminated by court order.
No. Exotic animals do not make good pets and endangered animals (including leopards) are impossible and illegal to get as a pet. Strick to house cats or maybe savannahs.
Yes. After the immigrant has become a nationalized citizen, then they have the same rights as a natural born citizen. They then have the right to adopt a child. Aldo remember that when adopting a child, the preference is to place children within the same ethnic background before moving to other options. So if you have a child who is a Native American and is in need of placement. The agency or agencies involved are… Read More
No governmental entity in the United States has a religious attribute. It is against the Constitution of the United States and if a government were to adopt an official religion it would become an illegal government.
Is it right for caucasian grandparents to legally adopt their grandchildren one parent is an immigrant because they feel as if they can simply do a better job or provide more for the children?
Whether it's right or wrong, it's not possible unless the birth parent's rights have been legally terminated.
