International Adoptions Attorney San Diego - International Adoption Harmonization Act
 
On July 20, 2010, the House of Representatives passed, by voice vote, the International Adoption Harmonization Act of 2010, to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act with respect to adopted alien children.

The International Adoption Harmonization Act of 2010, HR 5532, will allow an adopted child to legally immigrate so long as the adoption is completed and the petition is filed before the child turns 18. The current age limit is 16. The bill would also restore an international adoption exemption that was inadvertently eliminated when the U.S. joined the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoptions.

The bill was sponsored by Immigration Subcommittee Chairwoman, Zoe Lofgren (D-CA).
