When you become a US citizen, you can file for certain immediate relatives. As a US citizen, you can file for your spouse, your children, your parents, a fiancé and siblings. As a legal permanent resident, you can also file for your spouse and children, but they will go on a waiting list because they’re not immediate relatives. As a legal permanent resident, you cannot file for your parent or your sibling, nor can you file for a fiancé.
