  1. Dear All, We have adopted a baby from overseas. As per the law of that foreign country, they only allow guardianship of kids and hence, as per legal requirement in USA, we got his final re-adoption decree from court in US and his US birth certificate. He has been issued perm resident card. Now, my question is considering he is now our child legally, do we need to apply for his certificate of citizenship? A family here in USA, who also adopted a baby from overseas, mentioned that we don't necessarily have to acquire his citizenship certificate because the final re-adoption decree from US court is proof of his citizenship and is recognized by passport agency as one of the acceptable forms of evidence along with US birth certificate and therefore, the child can get a US passport based on that. Can anyone advise on this? Not to mention the fee to apply for certificate of citizenship is $1170 which is quite an amount. If we don't get certificate of citizenship for our child, is that going to cause any issues in future for him and us? Please advise. Thanks a bunch.
  2. Dear All, My mother-in-law had filed for immigration for her son in 2003. Her son was a Canadian perm resident back then (now a Canadian citizen.) Mother-in-law filed the immigration while she was a US permanent resident. Her son got married in 2005 and reported this change to the immigration. Mother-in-law later became US citizen. She had some address changes which was not reported to USCIS and her son also did not follow up with immigration folks to check the status of his case. After recently contacting USCIS, it appears his case was considered abandoned and USCIS seems to have closed/revoked the case. My question is, is there a way that he can file an appeal to have his case re-opened and processed? He is being told that he would have to re-apply all over again thru his mother, and to my understanding, this would again take probably around 13 to 14 years to process which we cannot afford time wise. Does anyone has any idea what are the options here? Please advise. Thank you all so much in advance.
  3. No reply. We just have to wait for only God knows and these guys know for how long. I have heard it took more than freaking three years for some to have their admin review completed.
  4. I know and do understand its a waiting game. The thing is they do not have any set time frame for that which could possibly take several years as well if going by their "Definition" of time duration. Considering that, someone's life could get upside down by the time the admin review is completed. On top of that once your case is in administrative review, there is a good chance it will get thrown behind other cases hence causing further delay.
  5. My sister, her spouse along with 2 sons had immigrant visa interview on April 10th 2017. Their passports were kept by US Embassy in Pakistan and they were told that their case is being forwarded for administrative review. They were given 221g with explanation of administrative review. The thing is they do not have a set time frame for these review. All it says is that it could take several weeks which could mean infinite period. Is it true that when a case is put in administrative review it gets thrown behind other cases that get priority over administrative review cases ? If that is the case then, its totally unfair. These people already waited for over 13 years to get their cases approved, with all the required documents submitted, where all the docs. were supposedly cross checked for authenticity by relevant departments, only to find out at the final moment that their case needs further administrative review. They need to fix this process and make it more efficient. I think this is nothing but absolutely BS. Pardon my French.
