I am a US citizen and will shortly be returning to the US (Texas) to petition for the adoption of my child.
The facts are :
I have had full legal custody of the child since 3 years.
The child will enter the US on an IR-4 visa.
The country of origin (Morocco) does not admit full adoptions; he is therefore under my custody only.
I have all the legal paperwork delivered in Morocco to show custody. The homestudy and all other USCIS requirements will be completed by the time I enter the US.
Based on this case, will I be needing an ADOPTION or IMMIGRATION attorney to complete my petition for Adoption within the US?
