Fostering/Raising/Custody?

I'd like to know more info on the "foster" or "custody" issue regarding a child. I appreciate any info from anyone.

My wife and stepdaughter will go to GUZ for CR1 interview at the end of April. We just got to know about this parental permission stuff. I did some research on this site, and found that the key word is "foster", in my wife's divorce paper, the Chinese version is that the daughter would be raised (抚养: to foster, to raise, to bring up) by my wife, and her father would pay child support til she reaches 18 and possibly medical expenses; there's no mention of the father's custody/foster/raising. It's understood that my wife has the full sole custody. The notarized English translation is that the child is in my wife's custody. It actually used the word "custody". Do you think that we need permission from my step-daughter's father? My wife is making contact with her ex-husband, who is not cooperating at the moment.

Any inputs are greatly appreciated.

If she has sole custody and he is not visiting, looks like you are good to go. You can always see a Chinese attorney while in GZ. If the consulate give everyone a visa or GC in your case wave goodbye to ex husband troubles.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.

Sorry, not have time to give 'the answer' yet.. here ya go.

Fostering in terms of Chinese Divorce 'law' means that the parent with fostering @ 100 percent has sole custody of the child.

Sometimes GUZ IV does not see it that way, and want additional stuff. To best jump this hurdle with some clearance,

obtain and show on interview day:

1. permission letter from the father (done up as a white book) stating he gives his permission for his child to immigrate to the USA.

2. tons of photos with the mother and the child, from the day the child was born to yesterday.

bring it ahead of time? no blue slip. No request for DNA test, either.

Good Luck !


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

After consistent prodding from friends, the mother and especially the daughter, he father agreed to give his permission this morning. I hope that he will sign it when the agreement is drawn up. Keep fingers crossed.

Thank
