I am married to a Filipina who has a 7 yr old son in the Philippines. Her son is carrying his mom's maiden name and no legal father. We are planning to file an IR2 for her son so he can come live with us here in PA. I want to legally adopt him. But before starting the IR2, we want to see the adoption options we could take. 1. Is it better to adopt him while he is in the Philippines or 2. wait until he comes to US and be an immigrant/citizen then process the adoption here? If anyone has done this process or similar, please gives us an idea, costs, time frames involved. This week be a great help. Thanks in advance. 😊
