Yes a parent can petition their married children over 21 as a green card holder or Citizen. (about 13 years)
Siblings must be US Citizens to petition. (about 14 years)

A US citizen can file for a sibling.  It doesn't matter if the sibling is married or single.  The wait is 13-24 years depending on the country.

 

A US citizen can file a married child.  The wait is 13-23 years depending on the country.

 

A green card holder can not file for a sibling or a married child.  Only US citizens can file for siblings and married children.

If the petitioner is an LPR parent, then the beneficiary getting marry voids the case.  An LPR can never have a file for a married child.

 

If the petitioner is a USC parent, then the beneficiary getting marry moves the case from the F1 category to the F3 category.

 

If the petitioner is a USC sibling, then the beneficiary getting marry means the spouse gets included in the case.

 

What is it that you want to do?  Instead of asking general questions, do you have any specific questions about bringing your married siblings?  Are you a US citizen?  Do you have a USC parent?

If someone filed for them while single and they get married the category changes. Not denied. So parents filing for adult children they marry during the process the time has just went up for processing and waiting for PD to be current.
Siblings doesn't matter same category.

actually my father-in-law applied as a green card holder in 2014 for his kids who were not married at the time. however, they did get married in 205 and 2016 so father-inlaws friend told him that the case will be cancelled or denied in this case. My own husband applied for 2 of his sisters who were both married. My husband is a USA citizen since 2010. This is why i came here on the forum to know what happens in both the scenarios.

Did your father-in-law become a US citizen before his kids got married?

 

If he was a USC when his kids got married, then the cases are still good and moved to the F3 category.

 

If your father-in-law was a green card holder when his kids got married, then the cases are void since a green card holder can NEVER have a case for a married child.  Once the US Government finds out they are married, the cases will be denied. 

 

Your USC husband filings for his sisters are fine.  Marriage means their spouses becomes eligible derivative beneficiaries.

In about 2 years, the NVC will bill your father-in-law to continue the petitions that he filed.  The child that is still single will be eligible to apply for a visa.  DO NOT PAY FOR THE MARRIED CHILDREN SINCE THOSE CASES WILL BE DENIED.

In this case once Father-in-law becomes a USC he can re-apply for the married kids as a new case and informs USCIS of the older cases??

He should withdraw the cases now.  The kids will never get any benefits, so just withdraw the cases.

Refile when he becomes a US citizen.  Once he refiles, they will get new Priority Dates and have to wait another 13-14 years for visas.
