I am a legal resident. Is there anyway for me to file for family reunion with my parents and little brother to bring them in US?

Asked about 1 year ago - Fort Myers, FL

Hello,

Thanks in advance for reading and answers. I want to know how I can bring my parents and my little brother to US. I am a legal resident. I know that according to USCIS website, only citizens can apply for their parents, I heard about several cases where people were filing while on legal resident status for their parents and even indirect relatives like uncles and nieces.
Thanks again.
