Hello

My brother married his girlfriend ( who has 2 kids for him.). My brother received his green card through my mom last year. He is now married to his girlfriend and would like to start the sponoring. Question. On the 1-130 does he have to fill out I 130 forms for each child. He stated that he was told that he just has to fill out one 1-130 form for his wife and then put the kids on that form, Pls help with this answer

thanks

He can file one and the kids will be eligible for derivative visas. If he becomes a US citizen before their priority date is current then he can upgrade his wife's petition to IR1, but he'd need to file new petitions for the kids.

Incorrect - there is not a derivative visa for an IR1 - They might be eligible for follow to join, if they were married before he got his gc

When ANY family family member can be sponsored DIRECTLY then a I-130 MUST be filed for each. So if a father is sponsoring his wife and 3 kids then that is 4 forms.. no exceptions. IF Brother is filing for his Brother .. he's NOT directly related to the wife and nephews as a qualifying sponsor and in this case only 1 form would be filed and the wife/3 kids would be given derivative status.

Hey ricardo, does this mean Me a USC who petitioned my mom, my mom cant bring her minor child, my brother, with her? I was thinking a follow to join might work for us you know...

you are right... you understood well. unfortunately your will not be able to 'follow to join.' A separate file must be submitted for him and your mother should do it.
