There is no set time. The Visa bulletin, with its changing priority dates, moves backwards forwards, unexpectedly. If your family is from Mexico or the Philippines, you can expect significant delays, perhaps, in excess of 10 years. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration visa attorney to best understand how family based visas work. Sometimes, family members may be disqualified from a visa. However, you may not find out until it's time for processing years later when a visa is available.
