A: As a U.S. citizen over the age of 21, you can file the FORM I-130 with USCIS on behalf of your parent.

You must present evidence to USCIS of the requisite evidence of your familial relationship.

A: Yes you can petition for your father. However you need to have documentary proof that he raised you. Sometimes immigration may request DNA evidence as well

A: A US citizen child over the age of 21 can sponsor his father for a green card through adjustment of status, after the father has arrived on a tourist visa. It is Immigration fraud to conceal your intent if you travel on a tourist visa. It is appropriate if he comes here only intending to visit but then later changes his mind and wants to stay permanently.
