the time frame varies but
00:10
if it’s a u.s citizen family member that

is petitioning on behalf
00:14
of their immigrant family member
00:17
that process typically is shorter
00:21
than a lawful permanent resident family

member so
00:24
a u.s citizen family member petitioning
00:26
on behalf of their spouse
00:28
that may take nine to 12 months
00:30
depending on the jurisdiction
00:31
and then a lawful permanent resident
00:33
