Your filing costs for the I-485 are $1225.00 and include an EAD and Travel Document. Attorney fees may vary. I do not quote attorney fees online or to a person without speaking with them either by electronic means or a personal consultation. Each case carries its own set of facts.

Q: Can I adopt my biological daughter at her birth?

My girlfriend is pregnant with my child.. She plans to go back to her husband because she is still holding a conditional green card. She wants to put her husband's name on my child. I refuse to have my daughter carry the name of a wife beater.

Kyndra L Mulder
Kyndra L Mulder answered on Sep 20, 2021

You are correct that when a married woman conceives a child the child is presumed to be her husband's child.

You do not need to adopt your biological child. You need to establish paternity.

This may seem to be an immigration question but it is actually a tax question. I suggest you consult with a CPA. It is possible that by filing taxes a single you paid more than you needed to. If this is the case you can amend your taxes going back at least a few years.
