I have a question someone may be able to shed some light on. We are down in Rio visiting relatives. Not about me as both myself and wife are USC. However my wifes nephews son who is a senior in HS is applying to american universities.He is a USC as he was born in houston when his parents were attending University of Houston(1991-1998). Pretty good swimmer and some schools are interested. wI ill get a partial scholarship. No student visa needed as he is USC.

He asked me today if his son could get him USC. I told him no he has to be a permanent resident first. From reading the guides his son must be 21 to petition for his parents.He is 18 now. The one question I have is his younger sister who is maybe 12, can he petition and get her immediate relative status. She was born in Brazil and is not usc. Obviously his parents are not going to come to the usa leaving a 15 year old behind.this would be three years from now.

Thanks for any help.

you already know the answer, he must be 21, by that time his sister will be 18 and she will be able to live by herself. his sister is not an immediate relative, and she cannot come with parents, as there are no derivatives on parents petitions. if he files for her separatly, the wait is over 10 years.

once he turns 21 and in the US, he can file for each parent, and they in turn, can file for the daughter when they are in the US
