Int. Family Adoption


New Member

We are permenent resident (GC) and have successfully completed a family Internation adoption - The child is in US on 5 years multiple entry visitors visa.

What are the steps to change the childs status from B1 to legal immigrant? In order to obtain the SS# and GC?

Should we wait for one more year (when we became citizen) to apply for the childs change of status to US citizen?

Any help on this matter will be greatly appriceated.

Child can NOT go back home, since most of her sisters are married. The child is only 14 years old

Thanks -
