Hi, can someone help me to know if we as a couple have applied for immigration and only a dependent wants to travel first and main applicant will continue his job for few more months.? Is that possible..? Please please guide
Not possible.

The dependent MUST land along with the PA or after the PA lands. The dependent CANNOT land before PA lands.

then follow your agent, but I am quite sure, u must bring all funds equal to the whole family, and therefore your family will be able to land without you after your landing.

No. You must be able to show documents proving sufficient funds for your entire family on demand. Your agent is full of shit, IMO.
