        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.
