  • Time for Adopted child to get citizenship New York

    Child was brought here at the age of 11 illegally.
    Since, he's been adopted by his aunt and uncle who are here legally and are citizens.
    The adoption has gone through and the new birth certificate in on its way.
    The process of filing for the child began around 3 months now.
    The child is now, as of 3 days ago, 17 years of age. And about 3 weeks ago a confirmation of receiving for his application for citizenship filed by his Aunt and Uncle was received.

    The child's adoption process started before his 16th birthday and concluded about 6 months after, where he went to court and finalized the process.
    The child has been living with his aunt and uncle shortly after he came.
    -In short how long would all this take? And are there any possibilities of rejection?
    Thanks for any insight.
