[Q] Can a dependent precede the Principal Applicant into US after all family members obtain Immigrant Visas?


No, after the entire family members (including PA) obtain Immigrant Visas from the American Embassy, the PA and dependents must either enter the U.S. together as immigrants or PA must enter the U.S. as an immigrant first and then followed by dependents. This is because all the rights of the dependents "depend" on the PA's rights. Until each person obtains "permanent" green card status, just think of dependent family members "piggy-backing" on the rights of the PA.
