Generally speaking, adult adoption is legal in the US, for
particulars, you would need to research your state's laws.

Some states require that there be a certain age difference between the
adoptee and the adoptive parent, but there is no reason why someone
can't adopt an adult.

I expect I was one. A delayed 21 year old child, that is, not one of your
dates.

Only in the normal ways, I think. Immigration is pretty cagey even
about the adoption of older kids and bringing them into the US. I
think they have to have resided with the adoptive family, overseas,
for some period of time -- 2 or 3 years. Otherwise, it has to be
treated like a regular overseas adoption.

A US family that adopts a kid while they're overseas, for instance,
might have problems bringing the child back home.

A child is considered an adult when they are 18. They can no longer "adopt"
a child over the age of 18.

Again no. If the person is over 18 and a citizen of another country, the
only ways in are if they are performers (and they have to renew work auths
every year), marriage to a US citizen (which can be proven to not be a green
card marriage) or if they are high demand professional, such as accountants,
lawyers, doctors or nurses, and engineers.

Trust me, I'm a Canadian citizen that is in the States via marriage and had
looked into any & all ways of getting into the country. Any other way is
illegal & with the Feds cutting down on illegals, you & the immigrant would
be considered possible sympathizers to the terrorists. The immigrant would
be sent back to their home country and would *never* be allowed back on US
soil.

I know I've never posted here...but I'll go ahead and respond to this.

Once the child reaches the age of 18, they are no longer considered a child.
However, most states allow "adult adoptions".

You'll have to see what the requirements are in your state...age difference,
and whatnot.

My step mom is in the process of adopting me, I am 30. The only real
difference is there is no homestudy required, and no TPR required.
