Can US Citizen file for a Spouse's adopted child (Adopted stepchild)?

Does anyone know if My US Citizen Husband, (who is not an adoptive parent) can file for my adopted daughter as an immediate relative, form I-130?

Thank you

I don't believe he can, but if he files for you, I think your daughter can also as a derivative beneficiary if she is a minor. I would look to VisaJourney - Your US Immigration Community for info on this. There are a lot of regulations on adoptions and who can claim who as an immediate relative.
