Legal Document Translation Services for Immigration
Language translation services by certified professional language translators, immigration document translations and certified translations play an important role in foreign adoptions. Adopting and bringing a foreign-born orphan into the United States is a complex legal process. Any married U.S. citizen and spouse or unmarried U.S. citizen of at least 25 years may file an orphan petition under INA section 101(b)(1)(F) and 8 CFR section 204.3. To file a petition, one must begin first identifying a foreign-born child to adopt and then file the paperwork related to one’s ability to provide a proper home environment and act as a suitable parent.
Once this is granted, the next step is to provide information on the child. According to USCIS regulations, the following information must be provided:
The child’s birth certificate (or evidence of age and identity)
Proof that the child is an orphan
A final decree of adoption from the foreign country
Proof of legal custody of the child
Proof of fulfillment of preadoption requirements.
As many of these documents will be in a foreign language, it is necessary to attach a professional translation from the foreign language into English. When filing with the USCIS, both the foreign-language original and its English translation should be included.
