Hola Javier: my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help you. Yo hable espanol si prefieres.

If you are a US citizen, the only way you can help him you can submit an I-130 petition for your brother right away. This is a family petition. The cost is $420 and you can find it on . Unfortunately, the problem is that there is a very long wait for a visa to be available for a brother. The wait right now is 13 years unless he is from Mexico, then the wait is 20 years.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
