Currently your friend and his/her family are under the F4 category.

By the time their priority date becomes current it is possible that one or all of the children would have aged-out (over 21 years old) because of the insane waiting period for F4 (23+ YEARS).

The over-aged children will have to be petitioned again by one of their parents, after the parent receives his/her green card. This time they will be under F2B category, unmarried son/daughter over 21 of Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR)/Green Card Holder. Waiting time for F2B is 10-11 YEARS.

The children MUST maintain their UNMARRIED/SINGLE status because if they get married while the entire F2B petition is in process, they will be transferred to another category which is the F3 (married sons/daughters of US Citizens). Obviously, their parents will have to NATURALIZE first before they can be put in that category, thus making the wait longer because LPRs can only qualify for citizenship after 5 YEARS of being green card holders. Waiting time for F3 is 20+ YEARS.

You can check here the October 2012 Visa Bulletin for the current priority dates being processed for the different categories: http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/bulletin/bulletin_5770.html

*** Moving from AOS to Bringing Family of USC ****

The above is correct, if the kids age out they will need to be petitioned by their parents, once the parents have their greencards.
