Hello Everyone,

I got a question about filing for my parents and my sister. I am a U.S citizen and planning to file for my parents under the IR-1 category. My Sister is only 19. Can I place her on the same application as my parents? If I file for my sister individually, I think it can take such a long time before the visa becomes available since she would not fall under the immediate relative category. Since my sister is only 19 and dependent of my parents, can she get the benefit of being in the same application so that it gets processed faster under the immediate relative category?

She is not your immediate relative per immigration , and she doesn't get to ride along with your parents. Your parents petition will take about a year which will make her 20 and it is highly probably she will age out to being an adult child of an LPR which will make the wait about a decade no matter the path


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Regardless of age each person need individual visa. You can file her for F4 (10-15 years waiting time)

FYI you do not file IR1 for your parents. That visa category is for a spouse of a USC of 2 or more years.
