Hi! I was adopted at the age of 10 to come to the US and all of my papers are based on the adoption. I am 24 years old and want to break the adoption. I was told that I would be able to petition for my biological relatives in Haiti since my original last name was left as my middle name. However, when I sent the application I was asked to show proof that the adoption had been broken. So, how do I break the adoption? What are the specifics? Who exactly do I need to get in touch with for such procedure? Thank you!
It is doubtful that a court will void your adoption. Because you obtained your immigration status through your adoptive parents, you cannot file an immigration petition for your biological parents. There is a specific regulation on that issue.
Perhaps there are other ways that you can help your family in Haiti.
Best of Luck

To add to the last answer it appears that you were allowed to immigrate based on the adoption. I would certainly consult with an immigration attorney about how to proceed or if you should proceed. Best of lusk to you.
