Adoption and Immigration

For a number of different reasons, married couples may decide to welcome a child into their lives through adoption. Because of the increased need for adoptive parents for children in countries outside of the United States, some of these couples may opt to pursue international adoption. However, if an American citizen chooses to adopt a foreign child, it is important that they understand the measures that need to be taken in order to ensure that the child can become a United States citizen.

Immigration to the United States can be a complicated process, but the assistance of an experienced legal professional can significantly reduce this complexity. Contact the Austin immigration lawyers of the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, today at 512-323-2333 to discuss the details of your situation with a qualified member of our legal team.

Adoption Immigration Processes

Parents considering international adoption have a number of different options available for ensuring that their child becomes a U.S. citizen. These include the following:

  • The Hague Process: available to children from countries participating in the Hague Intercountry Adoption Convention.
  • The Orphan Process: typically used when the Hague Process doesn’t apply.
  • Immediate Relative Petition: an alternative method through which adopted children may begin the path to citizenship.

These are the potential routes through which an adoptive parent can begin the process of qualifying their child for U.S. citizenship and the benefits it confers.
