  1. Hello Friends, Visa-journey and I have long lasting relationship. I appreciate the support this community provided me when I was going thru my immigration. Now I am back with another task in mind that I would like to request my visa journey family to help me with. I filed an immigration petition for my brother and his family 5 yers back with the hope to bring them to US after 10 or 12 years. The petition is still in the process as it is going to take long time as expected. I have always been supporting my brother and his children with their education and daily needs because my brother has proved to be someone who does not care for whatever happens to his children. It is not easy for me to cut ties with them and not worry about anything and live happy life with my children in the US. No matter how much I get mad at him or deny to pay for their expenses at the end of the day I pay them anyways. I was talking to someone at work about this issue and how I am concerned about my family overseas. My coworker friend asked the question " Why do you not bring them here to the US since you are paying for them anyways?" That started me thinking if this is someone possible. I would like to request my visajourny family to offer any help for me to at least bring my 15 years old nephew and 17 years niece to live with my family in the US. Thank you for your time in advance.
  2. Can my wife and I adopt domestically in Vietnam and bring the child to the US (instead of going through international adoption)? My wife is a Vietnamese citizen and US permanent resident. I am a US citizen. We currently live in the US. The child would not be a relative. We simply want to adopt some child in the future.
  3. I played dv 2022 for my mom and other relatives children who lives with her and they were successful 2022AF72*** then I submitted the ds 260 application a week ago already. She is in the process of getting the adoption papers for the children but my question is. 1. Can she get a new birth certificate and passports for the children when they are adopted? 2. Can she change their last name or they can just keep their original biological parents last name? 3. If name change then I’ve to contact kcc to unlock the ds260 for corrections, will it not be a problem for the entire process? 4. If the process will be complicated or an issue, can she contact kcc to just remove the children’s name from the ds260 then my mother can travel alone? Will this also be a problem? Note: the children already have birth certificates and passports which has their birth names on it.
  4. Hi. I have an issue I filed for K1 in Argentina, I'm the beneficiary. I'm only missing the interview which is on the 18th, but my problem is that I'm adopted. I was adopted at only 20 days old and here in Argentina we have something called "adopcion plena" which means if I request my official birth certificate, my adoptive parents show up and not my biological ones. I went to request my official adoption papers but the office is closed due to covid and they have not responded to emails yet. Should I move my interview date? What happens to people who have no way to get their adoption papers, or even people who aren't aware they're adopted?
