In order to apply for a green card on behalf of your parents, you must be at least 21 years of age. Because you will be serving as your parents’ sponsor, you must also show that you have enough income and assets in your name to support them adequately after they arrive in the United States. This means that you will need to show that your household, including your own family and your parents, will have resources equal to at least 125 percent of the U.S. poverty level. The purpose of this requirement is to ensure that your parents won’t be a financial burden for the government or the public when they arrive.

What Happens Next?
If your parents are living outside the United States, the approved I-130 petition will be forwarded to a U.S. consulate in your parents’ country. Your parents will then need to submit their own documentation and application forms. At this point, you will also be asked to complete and submit Form I-864.
If all the documentation submitted is approved and all requirements are satisfied, the U.S. consulate will schedule a final interview with your parents. Following this interview, your parents should receive a visa allowing them to enter the United States, provided there are no issues during the interview itself.
