Can a U.S citizen file an application to adopt a foreign-born child before the citizen has identified a child to adopt?


Yes. A married U.S. citizen, or an unmarried citizen who is at least 24 years of age and will be at least 25 when the petition is actually filed, may file a Form I-600A, Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition, to speed up the adoption process.
