Hello everyone :)

I just got here in US last year of December. My husband and i want to get either my parents or sister here with us, but we don't know how are we going to do it and we aren't sure if we can petition my family since we just filed my AOS recently. Answers is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Green card holders can only petition for their spouse or children. You have to become a USC before you can petition either your parents or your sister. Your parents will fall into the IR-5 category, and the waiting time is about the same as spousal visas - around 8 months to 1 year. Siblings, on the other hand, have numerical limits on the visas given out each year. The current priority date for the F4 category form the Philippines is still January 1989, which means you have 20-ish years, including the wait for you to become a US citizen.
