Hello All, When applying for Parents to come to USA as US citizen do you file one I 130 for both parents or you do separate for each one? Also when you have Siblings one brother at age of 13 years of age and other is 20 year and sister 23 and married how should one file them to come to USA? Should the petitioner do I 130 for siblings at same time of parents or wait for parents to come USA and file for their children's? which is quicker? Thank You very much in advance.

A US citizen will file separately to petition both parents. These would be Immediate Relative cases and derivative beneficiaries are not allowed. Each parent will need his or her own I-130.

The US citizen would need to file separately for each of the three siblings. Marital status does not matter. It currently takes 11 to 24 years for a US citizen to petition for a sibling - the wait time is determined by the birth place of the beneficiary. Since you have not disclosed which country, I can't give you a better answer. Derivative beneficiaries are allowed, so spouses and unmarried children under age 21 can immigrate with the petitioned sibling.

LPRs can only file for spouses and unmarried children. Depending on the birth country, it can take anywhere from 3 years to 18 years.

LPRs cannot file for married children. If an LPR petitions for an unmarried child and the child marries before the parent becomes a US citizen, the petition is automatically revoked (i.e., becomes invalid).

Hi, you have to fill a form for every individual, also when you make payment, it is individual checks, this will help aviod if there is a mistake in one form, it shouldnt affect payment on other forms...

If you want to apply for your parents and siblings all at the same time, you must meet the income level for your affidavit of support, which is form i-134, read that to educate yourself...

Applying for your siblings...

Bringing Siblings to Live in the United States as Permanent Residents

Eligibility

To petition to bring your sibling (brother or sister) to live in the United States as a green card holder, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 21 years of age. Permanent residents may not petition to bring siblings to live permanently in the United States.

To successfully complete the process, the U.S. citizen petitioner (i.e. the sponsor) must submit:

  • <LI sizset="18" sizcache="32">A completed
Form I-130. (Note: You do not need to file a separate Form I-130 for your sibling’s spouse or unmarried children under 21 years of age.) <LI sizset="35" sizcache="25">Evidence that you are a U.S. citizen:

  • A copy of the marriage certificate of the step-parent to the natural parent (age restrictions for meeting definition of step-child apply)

A US citizen filing for a brother or sister (F4 visa) - about 11 years.

A US citizen filing for an unmarried minor child (IR2 visa) - no wait, a visa is available as soon as the petition is approved.

A US citizen filing for an unmarried adult son or daughter (F1 visa) - about 7 years.

A US citizen filing for a married adult son or daughter (F3 visa) - about 10 years.

An LPR filing for an unmarried minor child (F2A visa) - about 3 years.

An LPR filing for an unmarried adult son or daughter (F2B visa) - about 8 years.

Keep an eye on the visa bulletin. The times are always changing.

Is there an age limit when an LPR does petition for his/her son or daughter? I thought if son or daughter were over 21 years of age it took like maybe 8-9 years and if they under 21 3 years.
