Hi,

 

Sorry for your loss. 

Unfortunately, the principal applicant's death ends the case.  The wife and children can not continue the case - the law does not allow it.  

Any fees paid for this case will not be refunded.  So, please don't waste your money.

Google "death of principal beneficiary immigration."

I gave you the short answer.  The long answer is complicated and most people will not qualify for 204(I) relief.  

 

204(I) is only available to derivative beneficiaries already in the US.  This is for rare cases.  

 

Humanitarian reinstatement is not available in a sibling case.

9 FAM 503.3-3(B)(5)  Death of Principal Beneficiary

(CT:VISA-1;   11-18-2015)

In the case of the death of the principal beneficiary prior to admission to the United States, neither the petition nor the priority date would remain valid for a derivative beneficiary.
