Filling out I-485 for my minor children -

Hi guys! Been a long time since I posted anything on this forum.

We've been fighting through this immigration stuff together in the US for 4 years now. We're finally (hopefully) almost done.

Here's the situation:

I filed an I-130 for my wife, then a K3 Visa for my wife, and K4s for her two (adopted) children. I did not know at that time that I had to file I-130s for the children too as I (mistakenly) believed that since my sons' K4s were derivative of my wife's K3, then their I-130s would be too. We of course, soon learned that was false, but not before USCIS did their astronomical rate hike a couple of years back, and were forced to wait and save our pennies in order to afford the new ridiculously high fees associated with I-130 and then I-485 applications for both children. We filed I-130s last year, and are now ready to file the I-485s.

As we were filling out the applications we came upon a few stumbling blocks.

1st - The children are adopted by my wife, and their re-issued birth certificates list no father (we began the process of adoption stateside, but that is another story), so - what do we put in the "Father" field of the application. Although they do not know it, I am not their father and so I cannot legally put myself there.

2nd - Who signs the portion of the form that says "I authorize the release of information" etc etc, as its obviously meant for the adult immigrant to sign, but since my children are minors, we're not sure if they're are supposed to sign (doubtful) or if I'm supposed to sign.


Thanks again!

Ara
