Hello there guys

What do I need to answer in my wife and children DS-160 form if the question is, "has anyone ever filed an immigrant petition on your behalf with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services"?

I am the principal petitioner filled by my sister. F4

Do derivates like my wife and children to answer Yes or No in this question form.

Thank You!
 
They’re not listed on the I-130 your sister filed for you, are they? That IMO means no immigrant petition has been filed with USCIS for them.

p.s. you’re not the principal petitioner filed by your sister. Your sister is the petitioner, you are the beneficiary of that petition. Your spouse and children are your derivatives.
 
They are listed at I-130 form at (me) Beneficiary’s Marital Information, such as Spouse and Children. My sister is the petitioner.
 
I mean they are not listed as the "Beneficiary" on the I-130. Your sister filed the petition to sponsor you, they just happen to be listed as your potential derivatives.
Here's how I look at it: Your sister can file a petition to sponsor her own child, her spouse, her parents, or her siblings - she cannot file a petition to sponsor her sister-in-law, or nieces/nephews. So there is no petition filed with USCIS on behalf of your wife or children.

Thank you Sm1smom, hope you are doing well.

No, they are not listed as "Beneficiary" on the I-130. They are mentioned/listed as Information About Beneficiary's Family or Names of Beneficiary's Spouses.

So the answer basically should be No, on the DS-160 form for B1/B2 Visa for their application.
 
The B1/B2 visa is a nonimmigrant visa category for individuals who wish to travel to the United States for business (B1) or tourism or medical treatment (B2). This visa category does not allow for individuals to work in the United States or to pursue permanent residency.

If someone has filed an immigrant petition on your behalf with the USCIS, this generally indicates that they are seeking permanent residency for you in the United States. The process of filing an immigrant petition can be complex and typically involves several steps, including filing the appropriate forms and providing supporting documentation.

The specific requirements and procedures for filing an immigrant petition depend on the type of visa or status being sought. For example, family members of US citizens or lawful permanent residents may be eligible to file for a family-based immigrant visa, while individuals with certain skills or qualifications may be eligible to file for an employment-based immigrant visa.
