Question
I am a US citizen and would like to sponsor my brother who is 45 yrs old and his family for immigration. How long would this take after the application? And during the waiting period, would they be facing any restrictions on traveling to USA? What are the risks that the sponsor has to bear on their behalf? And what are the constraints faced by those who are being sponsored?

Answer
15 years - They have to prove non-immigrant intent for visits prior to immigrating. Sponsor only has to submit financial evidence for the final interview and would have to reimburse for any welfare givent o the beneficairy. The person being sponsored can not overstay they time on any nonimmigrant visa, as this may trigger a 10 year bar.
