Unfortunately, a sibling’s relationship is not enough to demonstrate hardships. Only those who have a U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse or a parent or a U.S. citizen child may qualify. Note: the hardship must be shown to a U.S. citizen spouse or parent. For example, you have a U.S. citizen brother who sponsored your mother and now she is a permanent resident. If you have a current immigrant visa petition and can demonstrate hardships to your mother, you may qualify for a waiver.

The waiver “works” only when you have an approved qualifying immigrant visa petition. In the case with a child, the child, first must turn 21 in order to sponsor you. Then, he/she files I 130 petition for you, once that is approved you need to pay immigrant visa fees and an affidavit of support fee, and then you may apply for a waiver. However, you still need to have a spouse or a parent in citizenship or permanent resident status to qualify.
