You would be able to fill out the form for them if you have all of their info on hand, otherwise you would either have to collect all of the info from them or stay on the phone with them while you complete the application. This is what I did when I helped my cousin's husband fill out the DS-260 since he didn't have a computer.

This does not constitute legal advice.
