I'm very new here and I don't have any idea what would be the first step to take for my wife to petition her mother and brother which is 19 yr old. My wife is US citizen and she would like to petition her mother and brother. What is the first step she need to take? Do we need to file I-130 for each? Or we only need one I-130 where my wife's mother and her brother's name on it? Do you think that my wife's mother and brother petitions will approve at the same time? or one will proccess faster than the other? I'm very confused. How long does the process will take? When is the affidavit of support needed? Any inputs or suggestions will be appreciated.


"Have faith in God, Jesus answered. I'll tell you the truth. if anyone says to this mountain, Go, throw yourself to the sea, and that does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen. it will be done for him. Therefore I'll tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (MARK 11:22-24)

Using a I-130 your wife can petition both. Moms will only take about one year. Brother a LONG time. Maybe 20 years. Faster bring mom and after 5 years she can get USC and the petition her son. Takes about another 5 or so years.

Do you think it's better to include her brother's name in the petition with her mother? If we need to wait for my wife's mom to come here and petition her son, that time my wife's brother is over 21 yrs old. what if we're going to include her brother's name in the petition and later on when my wife's mom is approved and obtained her US citizenship and transfer the petition, in this case instead my wife is the petitioner for her brother, can she tranfer this petition to her mother? 20 yrs of waiting is like a hell. What are the other options.... ?

Can't include the brother. Must be separate I-130s.

Other option is as I said.

Faster to bring mom and after 5 years she can get USC and the petition her son. Takes about another 5 or so years to get brother here. Total about 10 years.

Yeah SUCKS. At least peeps can still get parents here. If the last immigration bill had passed petitioning parents wouldn't be happening anymore.

Your wife can file for her mother and brother. She must file separate I-130s. Mom should process within a year while the brother has a 11 years wait if he's not from India, the Philippines, or Mexico. Siblings from those countries have a longer wait.

As the other poster suggested, Mom as a LPR could file for the brother. Some people suggests doing this filing as a backup as a beneficiary can have multiple applications going on at the same time.

See the "Guides" button at the top of this page for more information. Then go to www.uscis.gov to find the I-130 form and instruction.

Can my wife's mom sponsor her son even she only had a green card? Later on, can she upgrade the petition once she obtained her US citizenship? When is the affidavit of support needed in this process? Just in case that her income is below the poverty 125%, can we seek someone to be her joint sponsor?
