Can a us citizen adopt an illegal immigrant adult in IL?
No. An adult cannot adopt another adult.
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.
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?
Ya know, I'm not sure.
i have a huge dick
If a Mexican or any other illegal immigrant comes into the country and has a baby does the parent receive citizenship?
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.
If they are an adult their status is still the same, they are an illegal alien.
How can an adult illegal alien become a citizen if they have a parent that is a naturalized citizen?
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.
That's not possible. Furthermore, the US has very strict laws concerning relationships between minors and adults, and many jurisdictions agressively enforce such laws.
Yes, and success often occurs, but not always. The immigration process can be long, drawn out and very frustrating.
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
Depends what country she is in. When you as an American adopt an adult, the adoptee does not become an American citizen. It also varies between states. Some are very restricted when it comes to adult adoption and apparently Michigan is the worst. the best thing you can do is to consult a lawyer.
Yes. Two things might happen, either the parent will be deported with the child also being deported (with the ability to return when they are adult) or else the ICE (INS) will grant leave for the parent to remain until the child is 18.
Can a Mexican citizen adopt a US child and when the child reaches legal age have them apply for a green card for their non citizen parent?
International adoptions are expensive and complicated and the applicants are subjected to an in depth investigation of their financial, living environment, moral character, etc. Given the circumstances cited in the question it could be considered an immoral as well as an illegal act by the adult wishing to adopt a child for the sole purpose of using the child to further his or her own welfare and immigration status.
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.
It depends on the state where the US citizen resides. In most states, you can adopt your 20 year old stepson in an adult adoption regardless of his immigration status. But you should know that you will not be able to use the adoption for immigration purposes.
no you cant but you can adopt a child
No. A 22 year old is an adult and, as such, is too old to be adopted.
No, because that would be in the teenager/young adult age group. When you become an adult, you can adopt.
Does an adult illegal alien that was brought to this country as a teenager have to leave the country to become a US citizen?
no they have to go through the process in the Us.
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… Read More
Does an adult illegal alien that was brought to the US as an infant have to leave the country to become a US citizen?
I would see a lawyer. I am sure there is a way.
You can't adopt an adult.
It currently costs £150 to adopt an adult dog and £200 to adopt a puppy.
Answer No. The person must be under the age of 14 and must be certified as an orphan or the parents must have voluntarily relinquished their rights to the child, and must have entered the US legally. The exception is if the minor qualifies as an asylee or refugee. Not so fast. The correct Answer is: it depends on the law of each "sovereign" state of the United States. In certain states like NY you… Read More
highly doubt it you need to be an adult to adopt
First of all at 20 they are no longer a minor. They became an adult at 18. So, you don't adopt an adult.
You must be an adult, eighteen or over, in order to legally adopt.
That is the correct spelling of "citizen" (legal adult resident).
When you are 18, you are an adult by law and no one can adopt you legally.
Yes u have to be an adult or older to adopt or try for baby
Can a 16 year old. born in the United States get married to a 19 year old who is an illegal immigrant?
No. Unless there is parental consent for the minor (16 year old) to marry the adult 19 year old.
The laws on this vary from state to state; inquire about adult adoption with your state's equivalent to the "Department of Children and Families".
That would be an adult illegal alien and a whole different thing. First he has to report to the authorities since you have to do it legally. I doubt it would work and he might get deported.
yes because they adult is now legally your son/daughter...
Absolutely, if you are an adult .
No, and you can go to jail for trying.
No, you have to be 18, and a legal adult.
No but in order to adopt you, your parents parental rights have to have been taken away or given up. If you are emancipated you are an adult and not all states and countries allow adult adoption.
The idea is that an adult is legally responsible for and able to take care of themselves, so they do not need someone to adopt them.
You have to complete the official legal process for becoming a citizen.
An adult can definitely adopt an adult. This can prove to be one of the easiest adoptions. Simply because the adult being adopted would need no permission from his or her biological parents as long as he is over the age of 18. If that adult is married, is the only permission needed. The spouse will need to give his/her permission for you to be adopted. I have heard of several forms of adoption but… Read More
It will depend on the laws in your location. There are places where adult adoption is common. It often has to do with inheritance rights.
No you can not adopt when dead. Can't believe you are asking this.
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.
No, Unless you are related to them by blood. SORRY
It is not illegal, but I suggest not to get a tattoo.
Yes a 19 year old can adopt. Once you reach 18 you are considered a legal adult.
