My stepson is eight years old and he is very sick. I have been married to his father for 6 years but he is illegal. I was trying to find out what I needed to do to bring him to the United States legally from El Salvador.
You can go to El Salvador and adopt him. You can get the waiver from his father. But, where is the child's mother? You will need to hire an attorney who can help you with the Adoption process in El Salvador.
After you adopt the child, you can file an immigration petition for him to enter the U.S.
If you have any further immigration questions, contact our law firm for a confidential consultation.

If you are married to the father you can apply for him to come in legally as a lawful permanent resident.
You can contact me to discuss this further if you wish.
Adoption may not serve your best interest until the child is in the US as there is a 2 year residency issue to overcome.
Once you bring him in you can adopt him.
On another note,you may wish to rectify your husband's status also.
