Should the parents file the reunion, or it doesn't make sense?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My brother-in-law's wife's sister is a US citizen. In 2009 she filed for her sister and her family(husband and 2 minor children). They are still waiting for their priority date. But the parents of both girls are getting their citizenship in January, very shortly.

Does it make sense for the parents to file the petition as well? Is there any chance the process will go faster and the parent's petition will bring the girl to the USA faster, then her sister's?
