  • IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICES
    UPDATE:  Public Law No. 106-395 (the Child Citizenship Act of 2000), which went into
    effect on February 27, 2001, amended INA 320 to confer automatic U.S. citizenship upon certain categories of children born abroad upon their admission to the U.S. as lawful permanent residents. Since the obligations of a sponsor under a Form I-864 (Affidavit of Support) terminate when the sponsored alien acquires citizenship, the Department of State and INS have agreed that an I-864 shall not be required to those categories of immigrants who will acquire citizenship upon admission to the U.S. Effective immediately, an I-864 will not be required for an orphan classified IR-3, provided the child will be admitted to the U.S. while still under age 18 and will reside in the United States with, and in the custody of, the adoptive U.S. Citizen parent. An I-864 will continue to be required for all other adopted children of U.S.  Citizens who are not eligible for automatic naturalization upon admission as a legal permanent resident. Specifically, an I-864 will continue to be required for any alien classified IR-4. An alien exempt from the I-864 requirement must still show that he/she is not likely to become a public charge.

    This is the branch of our federal government responsible for issuing the visa for your adopted child to enter the United States. There are forms you will need to order to complete this process. The forms are: I-600A, I-600 and I-864. You may order the forms from this site. However, it is our understanding that they will not accept them if they are downloaded (as they need to be on INS paper). http://www.ins.usdoj.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/
