Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the attorney helping you today.

Unfortunately, the wait right now for married children of US citizens is eleven (11) years. The waiting only depends on the country if you're from India, China, Philippines and Mexico. Those countries have a longer wait. All the other countries besides those four are in one line which has the wait that I said above. This means your brother and sister would be in back of applicants from ALL countries except India, China, Philippines, and Mexico.

I'm so sorry that the wait right now is so long. This time can fluctuate and may become quicker later.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
