I might have thought of a weird loophole to obtain 1a through adoption, I would like people's thoughts on it.
I am 17 and the son of two loving parents + a stepmom for good measure. I have a Serbian friend (18) who would like to get a green card.
If one/both of my parents relinquished legal rights and I was adopted by my friend would they be eligible for a green card as a 1a immediate family member? I *think* that as long as they're my legal parent they count as if they were just a normal, foreign, parent, but google keeps sending me info about green cards when adopting children from other countries so I'm having trouble finding definitive documentation.
Thoughts, suggestions about where to look, personal experience?
