    F. Vazquez. Minor children needs their parents to care for them. As a adult, you do not have the same needs.

    ace,
    first of all , i am very sorry that you ‘ve lost your brother, plus i don’t know how you petition for your brother’s family with him himself, cause it is technicaly impossible through F4. any way unfortunately they can’t get Green Card. but i can suggest you to adopt your nephew(s) if younger than 21.
