Generally speaking, adopted children may be included in a parent’s immigrant visa petition (in this case, an EB-5 petition) if the following three conditions are met: A) The adoption occurred before the child turns 16; B) The child has been in the adoptive parent’s custody for at least two (2) years; and c) the child has physically lived with the adoptive parents for at least two (2) years. There are small carve-outs/exceptions for each of these elements so it may be best to discuss the specific facts of the case to determine if the adoption is compliant with immigration regulations.
