I am a US citizen filed for my sister who is over 21. I filled I130 on March 2012.

 

but the thing is that my parents became US citizen this year. do you think that's going to make any difference to speed up the process?

 

please let me know

 

thank you

Your parents' naturalization has no effect on the petition that YOU filed. 

 

They can file another i130 for your sister (assuming she's single) under F1 but the wait time is roughly the same as the remaining time on your F4. 

 

Your parents could've filed for your sister (when they got their green cards (F2B). That would've sped things up for her. But too late now.

I would expect yours to come through before any filing made by your parents, might be good insurance for one of them to file.

Just realised you asked this same question recently. I will ask one of our friendly Mods to merge.
