the younger child should be easy I think just a re-adopt right? with her new name and an american birth certificate.....I'm just having trouble finding an attorney in NC that handles this issue.
the older child .... I'm not sure what happens I have heard that if a father doesnt pay child support for 2 years his rights can be terminated and I can re-adopt her....but then I've heard that isn't true.... can two people that adopted her that are now divorced re-adopt???
doesn't it take a immigration attorney to do this adoption even though they are legal citizens or can any adoption attorney do this?
well the youngest daughter's name has been changed from a specific hispanic name to an american name so she's never been called or even knows the name on her birth certificate.
In speaking with parents and adults from other countries that had foreign bc it was always a hassle getting a job or drivers license because they want to lump them in with the "green card" immigrants and they are american citizens.
no they do not
but with a name change they still have to present the guatemalan birth certificate which for one child would be in a totally different name ....would she just show her legal name change along with her bc?
