It is a very long process for siblings.  Depending on the country is can be almost 20 years.  It would be faster to your mother to become a citizen and then her petition the children.

So to start - what country?

Either you or she will have to petition them. Please provide dates of birth and country so we can better assess how long it will take.

I can wait for my other two siblings for her to be a citizen, she only have one year left to file.

however one of my Sibling is turning 21 this February and that worry me.

The sibling that is about to turn 21 may not make it. At 21, they are too old to be considered a “child”. Even if your mother files for them now it will not be approved before they turn 21.

<self deleted - misread under 21 as over 21>

 

Derivatives are permitted, assuming they are still under 21 (or covered by CSPA) once the PD becomes current.

The almost 21 yo will wait 10+ years for the visa under F2B category. He/she must remain single/unmarried the entire time. 

 

How old is the other child?

 

It will be faster if your mom files for them. If you do, it will take a lifetime. Have her file ASAP.

You brother near 21 will age out.   For the rest there are two parts - The USCIS processing time plus a wait on a visa if the Priority date is not current after processing.

 

F2A Preference: a spouse or an unmarried child under age 21 of an LPR, or

F2B Preference: an unmarried child over age 21 of an LPR.

 

According to USCIS the petition processing times for California Service Center are:

19 Months to 24.5 Months - Permanent resident filing for a spouse or child under 21
47 Months to 61 Months - Permanent resident filing for an unmarried son or daughter over 21
96 Months to 124.5 Months -U.S. citizen filing for a brother or sister

 

Right now according to the July Visa Bulletin the priority dates for Table B the Philippines are:

F2A 3/8/19

F2B  8/1/08

F4 7/1/98

 

Hope that helps and I got it right.

She can file for her children as a green card holder. Read my previous post.

For your older brother you might each want to file for him in the event that something happens to your mother.   He can have multiple I-130s pending.   You are out the cost but that is cheap insurance.
