USCIS Releases Guidance on Finalizing Haitian HP Adoptions

6 07 2010

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently released additional guidance for parents whose adoptive or prospective adoptive children entered the United States under the special humanitarian parole program for Haitian orphans. Please see the links below for information on finalizing adoptions and immigration benefits for paroled Haitian orphans.  Please note the information provided by USCIS involves the current path to citizenship, which is a two-year process and does not include children over the age of 16.   Joint Council continues to advocate for a legislative fix to ensure that all children who entered the United States through humanitarian parole,  can become citizens of the United States.
