Irvine, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: Hello, I am a naturalized US citizen and I petitioned for my siblings' to obtain residency almost 15 years ago.

They have finally received notification to schedule their interviews at the US embassy. I understand there is an amount to pay per person. They all have children. During these past 15 years one of the children, my nephew, is now 22 years old. Can my nephew still be included in this process or is it no longer possible due to his age? Thank you.
