The process is very similar to yours, and will also take about a year (faster than when you as a LPR petition). He can follow our Guides for parents: http://www.visajourney.com/content/guides

Your husband can petition for him, if the child was under 18 when you married, IR2 visa. Also I'm not sure what you mean by process your permanent residence next year, if you entered with a CR1 visa you already are an LPR. Unless you are referring to doing ROC.


This does not constitute legal advice.

As you can see from the following link, USCIS has only been taking about a month to approve petitions for beneficiaries in the Philippines.

http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/k1list.php?cfl=0&op1=a&op2=d&op3=17&op4=1&op5=5,6,8,10,11,13,14,15,16,17,18,20,21,22,25,26,27,28,108,110,111,208,210,211&op6=All&op66=All&op7=Philippines&dfile=No&adv=

You'd probably already have an approval by the time they'd even process an expedite request.

The slowest part will likely be the NVC phase, but even that is starting to move more quickly. You can also request an expedite once the case reaches NVC; just make sure to present compelling reason(s) for the request.
