I am looking at sponsoring my parents, so should I be filing two different applications or just one? Do I fill IMM08 for my father and then my mother? I also have a brother whois over 18 and whom I cannot sponsor, so I need to fill his details under Additional Family member and additional dependant?

Thanks

i'm not familiary with parent sponsorship, though i believe you would be applying for both your parents at the same time. i'd imagine one would be the principle applicant and the other would be the "spouse". as for your brother, yes all your siblings (and yourself) should be going on the additional family info for your parents will be filling out. you as the sponsor does not fill out that form. if your brother is still a dependant of your parents, then they need to include him as a "non accompanying dependant" in the application, i believe.

my suggestion is to find the parent's application thread and confirm whether he needs to be included.
