A "dependent" is defined as a spouse and/or unmarried child (child under the age of 21) of the primary F-1 or J-1 visa holder. Children born in the U.S., spouses or children who are U.S. permanent residents or U.S. citizens are not considered dependents for immigration purposes.
Please note that if your J-1 DS-2019 was not issued by Brandeis University, you must contact the visa sponsor which issued your document to obtain the correct paperwork to invite your dependents to the U.S.
