  1. Once your child is legally adopted its no longer your child. Just bring it up during the interview if you want tobe 100% safe.


  2. I agree with my colleague. You could be sure to mention that you had a child, but that the child was adopted, and therefore, is no longer consider you child for immigration purposes.
