Petition for siblings

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am about to file petition to bring my siblings here in the US. Both of them are single now, I believe it takes 15-20 years before the petition will be approved but what will happen if they get married before the petition gets approve? will it affect the petition? or I can change their status and different last name? thanks

  The only things that affect it are either of  you dying or the class being eliminated.  They collect the immigrants data way down the road so they will get current names, spouses and children later on


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

There is only one category for siblings, F4 - USC filing for sibling.  Does not matter if they are single, married, divorced, etc.  Their future spouses and children can be added to their cases.  


Only death of the petitioner or beneficiary would void the petition when a USC files for a sibling.
