1. USCs can petition for their parents at any time. It takes about a year. Costs are increasing on December 23 but currently the petition cost is $420 per parent (one fee and one petition per parent, even if they are married to each other).

2. Siblings - there is no differentiation between ages. A sibling who is 5 years old is the same process as a sibling who is 85 years old. The wait is around 12-24 years, depending on where they are from. Depending on the age and marital status of the siblings, it's often quicker for the parents to be petitioned and then for them to petition their children.

How long does it take when the parent comes then sponsor for a child over 21?

A child over 21 and married ?

A child under 21 and married ?

It will be about 12 years.

Parent visa to US = 1 year, then parents become US citizens = 5 years, then parents petition married children - 6 - 7 years.
