Green Card through Brother or Sister

Green Card Applications through Sister and Brother

Sister is US citizen and applied for me in 1989. But I have not got any information yet. My brother again applied for me in 2009. Is there any opportunity for me to get visa earlier as applied previously?

Continue through your sister. That seems to be the best option. Brother's application can stay pending. It need not be withdrawn.

LPR petition for son

My mother just got recently approved to migrate to the US as LPR. I am a USC. Now I was wondering how soon my mom can submit a petition for my brother who is unmarried and over 21. I am assuming it would be faster for my LPR mother to petition my brother than me.

It will be faster for her to petition and she can do so as soon as she wants. I would suggest she should apply when she moves to USA. If you wish, you can also start a petition for your brother. He can wait in more than one category.

Sponsoring green card for brother

I am a legal permanent resident for 14 years; I would like to know what I need to do to ask for my brother to become a permanent resident or green card. He’s here in U.S visiting me with his visa. He is 27 years old and not sure if I am eligible to request it.

You cannot petition for brother until you become a US Citizen. And, even after that, it takes over 10 years to get a green card. See family category 4 in the current visa bulletin: http://www.immigration.com/visa-bulletin

Cancel sponsorship of my brother

I have been a petitioner for my brother since I offered it in 2002. Now, I don't want to be a sponser for my brother. Can I cancel it or not?

You can withdraw the Form I-130.

Family based green card.

I am currently in the US on a h1b visa. My I-140 has been approved under eb3 category but looks like it will really take a while for the visa numbers to be current. My brother is a naturalized citizen. Can he file for my green card under family based siblings category? I was told by someone that i cannot file 2 immigrant petitions. Is that true?

You can simultaneously file through as many green card categories as you wish. Check out the backlogs on the visa bulletin.

GC for brother and family

I am a citizen here and would like to apply GC for my brother's family in India. My question is brother and family have 10 yr visiting visa and they keep travelling here every 2 yrs. Once I apply for their green card, can they still continue to visit here with their visitor visa? When would their visitor visa gets invalid.

Travel on a NIV while GC is pending is very uncertain. CBP can refuse entry.

B1 rejected because I had applied for Green Card

I was denied B1 because of lack of documents. On reality I have applied for Green Card as my sister is citizen of USA. How can I convince US officers that I will not abandon India and settle down in USA.

I do not know of any special proof that you can provide. This is purely a matter of consular discretion.

Petition for Siblings

My sister just got her green card last year. Can she petition her siblings ages 22 and 24? how long does the processing take?

Only US citizens can petition for their siblings.
