It will take about 10-12 years for your petition on behalf of your brother to result in a visa. It would be best for your mother to petition for him as soon as she is a permanent resident.

You can petition for your brother. He will wait many years for an immigrant visa to become available. You cannot petition for year mother until you turn 21.
