Can You File for Your Adopted Brother?

 

Can You File for Your Adopted Brother? In this clip, you’ll hear Brad Bernstein answering a radio guest who wants to file for his adopted brother. The answer is “yes” provided the adoption was finalized before the 16th birthday of the adopted child. Another question from the same caller is about his marriage. He wants to get married to a woman who lives in Jamaica, and he’s wondering if he could file for her adult son. You can file for an adult step child, but unfortunately in this callers case, the answer is "no” because his marriage did not occur before the 18th birthday of the child of his wife in order to establish a step-parent relationship. Brad gives information about how long the process will take and more.
