Unfortunately the answer is NO! I'm sorry. I have been dealing with this one for over 4 years now with my Mother-In-Law, and Sister-in-Law. They're from Scotland. I married my wife over there in Scotland (I was born in California). Anyway, I WAS able to sponsor my wife and her kids from a previous marriage. However; not the case with her. My wife will have to sponsor her when she becomes a citizen. (She is now a "Legal Resident".) An adult immigrant that's not related to an American Citizen will have to do it the old fashioned way and apply for a "Green Card" under whatever circumstances they have, or can come up with. Again... Unfortunately, these days they're not handing them out very easily. I had to prove that my marriage wasn't a scam 2 years after we moved my wife and the kids into the country. That alone cost another $210.00. We've spent thousands and thousands of dollars getting my wife and step-kids legally into this country, AND WE'RE MARRIED! Good luck getting an immigrant with no American Citizen relatives into this country legally. I wish I had better news for you about this, but we're all too familiar with the Dept. of Homeland Security (formerly known as the I.N.S.).

This users reply is to the extreme and a little over-exaggerating. There is no set amount of money you need like this user posted. 1 Million Dollars is not needed to start a business. When our economy was strong there were people reporting that they were getting denied when they had less than $100,000 in US funds to start a business. Well now that our money sucks and our economy has weakened anything more than 50,000 will be carefully considered.
Now the difference in my writing is that I actually provide proof of my rants and raves.
The E2 Treaty Investor: Nationals of qualifying Treaty countries who have made a significant investment in the United States may qualify for E2 Treaty Investor status. Like the E1 visa, there is no set minimum level of investment which may qualify for E2 status, but the lower the investment the less likely one is to qualify. Again, the level of investment must be sufficient to justify the treaty national (or his/her employees) presence in the United States. The investment must be in an operating business - i.e. simply buying property or stocks and bonds does not qualify. Also, a substantial part of the investment must have been made before applying for E2 status.
Of course the immigrant will have to be originating from one of the countries in the treaty.
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?
Yes, and success often occurs, but not always. The immigration process can be long, drawn out and very frustrating.
No. An adult cannot adopt another adult.
No, only when the child is an adult (18) can they request a green card for the parents. They will be illegal until then, unless they marry a citizen or get an employer to sponsor them.
Sponsoring is basically showing proof of the relationship. The most common form of sponsorship would be through petition I-130. It helps prove to immigration that you have a relative or spouse in this country that will back up your application for a green card.
Stands as the sponsor for the adult being baptized, answers the questions as to their fitness to be received into the Church, and vouches for them.
Any adult, Confirmed Catholic may be a Sponsor for Confirmation.
You can sponsor him thru employment. In other words, you have to hire them to work for you. I am not sure if you can just bring them under some other type of visa and that only requires you to pay all his/her livings expenses without working for you, but there may be. You better check with the USCIS or an immigration attorney.
The fact that their parents are naturalized really doesn't affect their status. They need to meet the requirements of anyone that comes in and wants to become a legal immigrant. Contact an immigration lawyer for the options that are available for you.
The Sponsor is a second adult who practices their faith, who can guide you in your spiritual journey. The Sponsor witnesses your vows, and will assist you if you choose to ask them questions or seek guidance. This person is like an adult spiritual mentor for you.
That is the correct spelling of "citizen" (legal adult resident).
There are multiple ways for an illegal immigrant to become and American citizen. They could register, and become legal. They could also marry an American citizen, or if they are female, have a child.
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.
The responsibility of a baptismal sponsor is to be there for the adult or young adult as they begin their walk with Christ. The sponsor is similar to a spiritual mentor in that one will be there to give love and support that person. Hold them accountable when they start to go down the wrong path and encourage them when they are walking in right steps with Christ.
You have to complete the official legal process for becoming a citizen.
Ya know, I'm not sure.
The average IQ for an American Citizen (adult) is 98 points.
A citizen was an adult male who was vouched for by his tribal council at the age of 18.
say something (i'm guessing the relative is legally an adult)
That's not possible. Furthermore, the US has very strict laws concerning relationships between minors and adults, and many jurisdictions agressively enforce such laws.
An adult male who proved his descent from an Athenian citizen to his tribal council.
by acting like a adult citizen
There is no legal age.However, if the person is a minor, of course parental permission is required.Added: The law doesn't apply to the hotel, the law applies to the adult non-relative.
Adults who are adopted do not automatically become citizens of the U.S. Also, you can only adopt him if you have a strong, deep relationship with him already as in being a relative or stepparent, etc.
