Dear VJrs,

I've been using the forum for a long time (heck, you helped me on my journey from K-1 to LPR to US Citizen), and now I need to pick your lovely brains again.

My father will be traveling to US within couple of weeks with his brand new visa (IR5) which he obtained through me (US citizen). As soon as he receives his green card my father intends to apply for his 18-year old son (my brother) to immigrate who would fall under F2A category .

I have 3 questions:

1) How much time could my father spend in his old country without jeopardizing my brother's application? My dad is 70 years old and would prefer to be with the rest of the family abroad. Of course, he is willing to stay in the USA for as long as it takes for my brother to get here.

2) At what point of F2A immigration process does the USCIS/CBP/DOS check on the status of the petitioner's (my father's) green card?

3) What are the latest wait times for son/daughter applications of green card holders? How good of a chance does my brother have of immigrating before turning 21? Is it still true that his age doesn't freeze during NVC processing?

Many thanks!
