USC marrying a UK citizen who is formal caregiver for adult autistic son

Jump to last reply

My brother (the U.S. citizen) is currently divorcing after being separated from his wife for over two years. In the interim, his former wife of many years ago (a UK citizen now living in Scotland) and he have renewed a relationship, and it seems they are definitely heading toward marriage. They were married in the late 80s, and after divorcing (were married for less than two years) she returned to England. They both went on with their lives, he remarried (no kids), she had two children in a long-term relationship (no marriage). Her daughter is 18 and her son is currently 21 and is autistic, he's totally dependent on his UK citizen mother, therefore she is his formal caregiver. During this time, my brother and she have been trying to investigate everything in order to move forward. She inquired about moving to the U.S. and bringing her son/daughter, but although she could bring her daughter once all visas are processed, her son is a different story. He's an unmarried 21 one year old with special cognitive deficiencies, and we are unaware of any special visas or any way that he could immigrate along with them under my brother's future petition. To put their minds at ease, my brother is willing to move over there (once he's divorced and she files a fiancé petition for him) so that she doesn't have to worry about her son and the potential inability for him to come to the U.S. permanently. There are a lot of "what ifs" and questions, and although they've inquired with the embassy and a lawyer, nothing seems crystal clear. Has anyone here had a similar circumstance or could anyone offer any advice? Any/all feedback is very much appreciated!
