Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.

Adoptions for immigration purposes must take place before the 16th birthday and the process has to all be done in India.

The only way he could come to the US is on an intra-company transfer of manager or executive if he has a company in India and opens a branch here. That is an L1A visa. He would have to prove he has been working for the company in India for one year and would have to hire US workers for the US company and he would be allowed to come here to direct the company.

There is no treaty between the US and India for investor visas.
