Form I-800 | Petition to Classify Convention Adoptee as an Immediate Relative



Purpose of Form

If you decided to adopt a child from another country, you should follow the special procedure according to the legislation of the US. In fact, it’s necessary to file two special forms. There are also different adoption requirements according to the laws of different states, that’s why you are obliged to attach these files as well. 

Special Instructions

The first one is Form I-800A (Application for Determination of Suitability to Adopt a Child from a Convention Country). During submitting this form, you have to prove that you are eligible and you have enough financial resources to adopt a child from another country. After that, you have to file USCIS Form I-800 (Petition to Classify Convention Adoptee as an Immediate Relative). You can use this form only if you are going to adopt the child who currently lives in a Hague Convention Country. In addition, during filling Form I-800, you have to attach approved Form I-800A in order to provide comprehensive info about the child whom you are going to adopt. Form I-800 is usually filed with Form I-864 or Form I-864W.

It so happened that I had to apply for political asylum in the United States. I understood in advance that it would not be easy to leave for America, but I didn't think that I would have to draw up so many documents and answer many tricky questions. With the help of Usa-immigrations.com, which I accidentally found on the Internet, I managed to overcome all the difficulties associated with paperwork quite easily. The site has a lot of useful and necessary information, with the help of which it is easy to collect and fill in all the necessary documents.

I married an American and had to get a green card to move to the USA. I found the website Usa-immigrations.com on the Internet, went to it and immediately realized that here I would find all the necessary information. On the site, I really found everything I needed. Thanks to the developers for coming up with such a useful site.

I needed to issue Form I-130 “Petition for a Foreigner Relative” in order to take my wife and child with me. I myself went to America on a green card and received permanent resident status. On the website Usa-immigrations.com, I found not only a form, but also instructions for filling it out. In addition, here I found other useful information, such as how much you need to pay for submitting the form and how you can pay. It also tells you where to submit your completed form. All this information is very useful for people who have never dealt with the execution of such documents.

My husband and I left for the United States on a green card, but it's time to update it. To do this, you need to collect documents again. We decided not to seek help from lawyers, but to do everything ourselves. I heard from a friend that there is a website Usa-immigrations.com, where you can get not only the information you need, but also find and download all the forms you need to fill out. The site really turned out to be very useful, we were able to quickly fill out the necessary forms and send them for processing.

The impressions of using the website Usa-immigrations.com are positive. Prepared documents for leaving for permanent residence in the United States. Like any person who faced this task for the first time, she did not know where to start and where to run. A friend helped. I don't know where she got the address of this site, but the information on it is really very useful and necessary. With the help of Usa-immigrations.com, I not only found out what documents I need to collect, but also found instructions on how to fill out the required form. Many thanks to those who came up with this site.
