Adoption Certificate for green card

Recommended Posts



I am an Indian citizen about to file for my green card. I was adopted within the first year of my birth and thus my passport has the name of my adoptive parents. The birth ceritificate naturally has the name of my birth parents, though the names are not complete. I have the following questions. It would be great if someone can answer these:


1. What are the documents needed to establish adoption-There is an adoption deed, though it is in Hindi (Godnama). Is a notarized translation of the deed sufficient or is there any other certificate required?

2. Since the names of birth parents are not complete (initials abbreviated), do I need separate affidavits or is a new issuance of birth ceritificate with complete names sufficient?
