I am afraid you will not be able to benefit from the family based immigration at this point due to your age. You should talk to an experienced immigration lawyer to explore another path if possible. Good luck.
Unfortunately, U.S. children and siblings must be over the age of 21 to file an immigration petition on behalf of their parents and/or their brothers and sisters. There are also other requirements, such as income requirements, that you must meet. I recommend talking to an immigration attorney to help make sure you will be prepared when the time comes.
No. You must be at least 18 years of age to petition for a sibling. You must be at least 21 years of age to petition for a parent. You will also need to establish domicile in the United States to meet the affidavit of supoort requirements.
