do the children live in the u.s.?
over age 21?
Great! No worries. One of the children needs to file for a green card for him. As the father of adult u.s. citizens, a green card is immediately available for him. The child needs to file form I-130. you can get the form from http://www.uscis.gov/ "forms" and the instructions are there also. Once you file and it is approved, it will be sent to the National Visa Center (NVC) and they will ask for fees and the I-864 affidavit of support to be sent. Once that is done the file is sent to the u.s. embassy in his country and they call him for the interview and he gets his green card. It will take about 8-10 months from the filing of the I-130. Also, don't worry the lapsing of the last green card is not held against him.
