Hello! I can try and assist you with this matter.
What state do you currently reside in.
Is your daughter willing to be adopted by your husband?
I can research the adoption procedures for international individuals. Allow me to post my standard blurb about accepting answers here on JA and I will address your question specifically.
If at anytime you feel that I have adequately provided you with an answer to your question, then if you would please click the accept button so that I may be compensated for my work that would be very much appreciated. Also, bonuses are optional, and are certainly not required, but very much appreciated. Remember, clicking the accept button does not prevent you from asking further questions on this post, and will not preclude me from continuing to answer your questions and provide you with research.
okay, I'll be waiting for the results of your research.
Ok. please wait patiently while i find the process of adoption. Also, is your daughter a U.S. citizen?
No, she is a Russian citizen and lives in Russia.
Ok. Thank you. Hold on for a moment while i find the pertinent information for this process.
One more question to aid me in finding the process. Is your husband looking to just adopt your daughter, or is your daughter looking to come to the US also. This is relevant for visa purposes.
He wants to adopt her and live with us in Missouri whenever it becomes possible. Her stepfather died three years ago who was like a father to her. Otherwise, she never had a father, I was a single mother.
Ok. Here is what i found on the process of adopting an international individual, specifically a russian.
Russia Adoption Process
Here is a list of accredited russian adoption agencies.
USA Adoption Agencies
Does this help?
Can you please email me all this? And she is an adult, not a child. Is there any difference with the procedures?
I do not believe there is a difference but the listed adoption agencies will definitely provide you with the procedures if there is a difference.
I am not allowed to email from my personal email to customers I interact with on JA but if you can copy and paste this information into an email and send it to yourself.
Sorry! I wish i could help you out.
I hope this information is helpful. It is a very unique situation you have!
Yes it is. Thank you.
Your very welcome, if you are satisfied would you please click the accept button so that I may be compensated for my research and work.
I wish you the best of luck! Clicking the accept button will not prevent you from asking further questions on this post.
Is there anything else that I can help you find tonight?
I think that will be all. I believe I have clicked the accept button.
I dont believe you have, because this chat will end when you do.
When you click the accept buttonit will end this chat and ask you to leave feedback for the services that you have recieved.
I am trying to save it before. I have clicked the accept button and then "cancel" because I was afraid to lose it. I was not able to email it to myself.
Ok sorry for bothering you. I just wanted to make sure you knew the procedure for accepting answers, and see if you had any questions left. Thanks so much for your question and future accept. Good Luck!
I just got an emali from JA that my deposit had been received. Hope it is reflected in your records. Thank you again. I finally managed to email your information to myself. But I noticed that you did not give me the names of Russian Adoption Agencies. And the licences of the American ones had been expired. I also was not able to get to any of their websites
Of course and thank you again.
