F3 or F4 (or both) ?

Hello all,

My parents are I are being naturalized citizens very soon, and want to apply IV for my brother (over 21, married with 2 kids). We wanted to clarify a few questions -

1. Can my parents petition for my brother separately? I understand there will be two I-130 fees. But as my parents are a bit old and petition becomes abandoned if the petitioner dies before completing the process (which what I understand is 10+ years for F3); they would like at least one will go through.

2. For the same reason, can I petition for my brother (F4) too ?

So basically, there might be three separate applications for the same person (my brother, and his family). Is that doable? or there is any limit? We are just trying to hedge our risk so at least one petition will work for him and abandon the rest.

Thank you.

Yes, there can be multiple petitions. Not a bad idea in case something happens if you can afford it.

Yes, that's possible and probably a good idea. The I-130 is not an application, it's a petition. Thus, it won't be three different applications, but three different petitions.
