    I am helping my family with several immigration cases.

    My US citizen father is petitioning for my married brother and his family in the F3 category from Viet Nam; PD is Oct. 2000.

    My US citizen cousin is petitioning for her married brother and sister in the F4 category (USC petitioning for a sibling) from Viet Nam; PD is April 2008.

  1. If you are a US citizen, it would take about 14 years for your brother to be eligible for an immigration visa or to be eligible to adjust status. USCIS approving the I-130 is only the first step in the immigration process. In the F4 category, USC petitioning a sibling, your brother would need to wait for his Priority Date to become current before he's eligible for an immigration benefit. Furthermore, in order to adjust status in 14 years, your brother would need to be in status; meaning if he overstays his visa, he will not be eligible to adjust status. Once your brother has a green card, it doesn't matter what his petitioner does. If his petitioner leaves the US forever, he still gets to keep his green card. Is your mother a USC or green card holder? Are you just thinking about petitioning for her so she can petition for your brother? What's your brother's exact age?
  2. They need four DS-260. Each individual must have his/her own DS-260.
  3. Your sister can apply for a tourist visa. It may be hard for her to get one since you said you would need to take care of her. She will be to show ties to her home country. If she doesn't work or have property, it may be hard for her to get a visa.
  4. Still breaking the law. She can not work period. It doesn't matter if she is prepaid for the work.
  5. If she can't live on her own, she would probably be deny an immigrant visa for likely to be a public charge. Even though Biden has gotten rid of Trump's DS-5540, the old public charge standard still exists.
  6. It's going to be a long time before your sister can immigrate to the US. It will take 14 years for you to petition for her in the F4 family preference category. It will take 12-24 months for you to petition for your mother. Once she is an LPR, she can file another petition for her unmarried daughter in the F2b family preference category where the wait is 7 years. Your mother can get a Re-Entry Permit that allows her to stay outside the US for up to 2 years without losing her green card as long as she maintains ties to the US (you will need to Google maintaining legal permanent residency). She can renew it once, so it will be a total of 4 years. She can not be outside the US longer than that. And being outside the US for more than half the time will mean she can not get US citizenship. At some point, she will need to live in the US and not be able to take care of your sister. The above are the only ways to do this. There are no other ways. I am sorry.
  7. Hi, It will take about 12-24 months to petition your mom. Only your mother will get a visa. Derivative beneficiaries are not allowed, so she can not bring your sister. It will take 14 years for you to petition your sister. Once your mom becomes an LPR, she can petition for your sister if she is single. It will take 2-7 years depending on whether your sister is under or over age 21. Sibling petitions are treated like any other petition. As long as you can prove having a common parent, it's fairly easy. An reason for a denial would apply to other types of cases; not meeting the I-864 requirements, criminal past making a person inadmissible, prior US immigration issues, etc.
  8. Ignore the expiration date. Whatever is on the USCIS's website is the latest and current forms.
  9. Follow the VJ Guide for adjusting status. It's pretty much the same as filing to adjust from a K-1. In addition, your mother will need an I-130.
  10. Did you mom legally enter the US? If your mom legally entered the US and overstay, then she can file for AOS. If your mom entered the US without inspection, then she does not qualify to file for AOS.
  11. You need to go see a lawyer for help. It seems you are very lost. Did the NVC request a DNA test? You are missing the police certificate.
  12. Send in photos where you have your shirt on. You need to be professional.
  13. You as the petitioner file an I-864. Your husband as your Household member files an I-864a. His current income should be sufficient to meet the Affidavit of Support requirements. The NVC will notify you that his income may be insufficient due to a lack of a tax return showing an annual income of over 125% of the poverty level and that the CO at the interview will make the final determination. Have your mother prepare an I-864 as a Joint Sponsor.
  14. Another point. The I-485 fee is $1140 + $85 for biometrics. The I-751 fee is $595 + $85 for biometrics.
