    If your father had filed a I-130 petition for your mother and the children prior to his death, then it may be possible to keep the application going if the family has a qualifying substitute sponsor who must be a US citizen or LPR and closely related to the family by blood or marriage. A US citizen brother or sister-in-law of your father could substitute but a cousin could not. See the link below for a list of relatives who qualify as substitute petitioners:

    No, you can't. The only person that could get you a green card has died, you can no longer use his status to get your family a green card.

    No. You would have had to have green cards yourselves, and have already moved to the US when he died. The dead can not petition you for a green card now.

    He was the connection and as he is deceased that connection is cut. He also wasn't a US Citizen so their is no way even if you were a minor. Sorry but best of luck to you.

    Not unless you were included on his original application, since he is sadly no longer living then the chances are pretty much null and void.You cannot ask on his behalf as he is now dead. In short I doubt it.

    Source(s): I have a green card and made this provision for my children when I applied and before I came to America.
