    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.

    Default child adoption age limit

    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.
