i-130 Alien Relative got married during the process.
My Father has filled the petion as US a US citizen for my sibling and now is married

Timeline of his application process:
Sep 2016: Filed the petition as Single, Over 21.
Mar 2019: He got married.
Oct 2020: His petition was approved.
Apr 2023: The National Visa Center (NVC) requested documents, including the Form DS-260.

Question: Currently, he wishes to update his status to married on the application, although his family does not intend to accompany him. He plans to sponsor them through a separate petition after obtaining his green card. I'm inquiring whether selecting 'No' for specific fields and maintaining this stance during the interview will allow him to retain his original priority date and category.
