H4 dependent visa and stamping for the adopted child

My Husband and I am on H1-B (work) visa and we both are Indian citizen. We are thinking to adopt a child from India through Indian high court with proper legal process. Can you please let me know what all documents will be required to apply for H4 dependent visa and stamping for the adopted child, apart from adoption paper, birth certificate, passport and my H1-B documents?

Nothing is finalized till now but I am trying to understand complete process and list of documents required to apply for H4 dependent visa and stamping, so that I can ask attorney in India to gather and create all the required documents during adoption process, so we will not face any immigration issues later.

What all challenges we can face ? What all preparation we need to do.

That’s so nice of you to adopt a child !
I do not have any experience or expertise on this. I would suggest you write to the US embassy.
The closest I found was this, it has some info, but I dont know the reality.

Also, do share your experience here, once you have more information on this.
