USCIS Suspends New Adoption Cases from Nepal if based on Abandonment

The Department of State and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) have decided to suspend processing of new adoption cases from Nepal that involve children who are claimed to have been found abandoned.  USCIS has stated that documents presented in support of the abandonment of these children in Nepal have been found to be unreliable and circumstances of alleged abandonment cannot be verified.

USCIS has released an informative Question and Answer on this suspension that you can read here.

We will post additional information at when it becomes available.
