Adoption of Children Affected by the Earthquake in Nepal
There has been an increase in the requests for information by many United States citizens, inquiring about how to adopt children from Nepal, affected by the recent devastating earthquake.
USCIS must first determine before the child may immigrate to the U.S. if the child qualifies as an orphan and that the future adoptive parents are capable of providing adequate care. The Nepali authorities must then determine whether the child can be legally adopted. Efforts are always made to try to reunite the children with their parents or other family members.
Unites States Citizenship and Immigration Services, USCIS, has set some guidelines regarding the adoption of children from Nepal and information can be found on the following webpages:
