I just need some advise. My brother in law  (US citizen) petitioned his 2 kids who came to the US with tourist visas. They received the I-797 approval notice for both kids. One kid, 5 years old, it says it was approved and they need to file the adjustment of status. For the other one, 4 years old, it says he may not be elligible for adjustment and his case has been sent to the NVC.


I understand the NVC is for consular processing, but why is it different for both kids? they both entered the US with his parents, father US Citizen, mother also under I-130 petition pending.


If anybody has an idea of why this could be, please let me know. Thank you!
