I am US citizen living in US. I would like to sponser my brother so that he and his family can come and live with us. Does anyone know how long the wait is, or where do I find where the waiting lists are? I haven't sent any applications in yet.

Thanks

I believe that your brother would be 4th preference (I could be wrong, but that's what the list below says) which is currently April 1999.

And the children may age out before his petition becomes current. How old are your brothers children?

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

And the children may age out before his petition becomes current. How old are your brothers children?

The Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) amended the Immigration Nationality Act by changing how an alien is determined to be a child for purposes of immigrant classification. The Act permits an applicant for certain benefits to retain classification as a “child,” even if he or she has reached the age of 21.

"The child’s age freezes at time the visa petition is filed (Form I-130). "

It is more intricate that the fact it freezes. There is a member with more info it does really freeze it until the application has been approved ( USCIS level ) and then calculates based on how long the petition was at the USCIS. That is why I asked what the ages were now. The CSPA is a complicated law and very mis understood by many.

"The child’s age freezes at time the visa petition is filed (Form I-130). " THIS ONLY APPLIES IF THE PETITIONER FILES FOR HIS/HER MINOR CHILD AS AN IMMEDIATE RELATIVE.

CSPA works differently for family preference category cases. An F4, USC petitioning for a sibling, is a family preference case. The brother's children's ages will NOT free at the the time the petition is filed.
