Good afternoon, Claire!
Thank you quick response.
We have made all the possible inquiries and it appears that there is no Such a thing in Kazakhstan as In-Family adoption, where the adoptive parent is a foreign national. Only those Kazakh children can be adopted by a foreigners, who's both parents are either dead or withdrawn of the custody over them due to alcoholic/drugs dependence or violent treatment towards those children, and only those children can be adopted who were on the Kazakh adoption agencies' websites less than 6 month and were not spotted by kazakh couples, willing to adopt. But he is not an orphan, lives with us permanently and I have got the sole custody and I am the only parent mentioned in his Birth Certificate, so consent of another birth parent would not be required.
Thank You so much in advance,
Unfortunately, my husband's work pattern is a residential one and we intend to live least a couple of years, by which time, practically, the child will turn 18 (he was born on the 3rd of May 1999 so he will turn 16 this May). And in couple of years time we plan to reside in the UK.
Good afternoon, Clare!
Oh, that is very frustrating news as we want to make sure that my son who is and has been treated as a child of the family to have the solid rights inheritance.
Could You tell us, if just us 2-me and my son will come to reside in the UK as of the end of the current school year,in the mid summer this year, to not interrupt the educational process at the end of the academic year, by which the child will just turn 16 years of age, which will allow 1 year of living in the UK and will leave approximately 6 month to make an application adoption in the UK, will the adoption be possible, given the fact that we have lived as a family in the Middle East and do have an emotional and family bond between us 3? As my husband is the only bread winner in the family as of now. And, of course, we would be seeing each other quite often, as he can split his vacation entitlement (2ce a year into 4-6 shorter visits) and me and my son can go to the Middle East on numerous occasion as long as it won't be in the breech with the immigration law and won't exceed 270 days a year in total.
Thank You so much, Claire! You helped So Greatly! 1 more question: do I have to live 1 year before the application submission afoption on the Spousal visa in the UK or Family visit will be OK?
Thank You Great help and now we know what to do! Thank YOU!
