Can I apply for a greencard for my brother or sister?
The answer is yes if you are at least 21 years old and a US citizen. US permanent residents are not eligible to apply for their siblings. Since siblings are deemed eligible for an immediate visa, they must wait after the USCIS approves their petitions for the priority date of their application to be reached by the National Visa Center until an interview will be scheduled for them in their home country. This could in many instances take several years.
Can I file for a fiancée visa for a same sex partner?
The answer is yes. Whether you are male/male or female/female , the filing requirements are the same as with any fiancée visa, in that you have to have a US citizen petitioning for you, prove you met in person within two years, and establish your intent to marry within 90 days of entering the US. The process isn’t anymore difficult for a same sex couple as a heterosexual couple applying for a K-1 visa.
