How long it takes depends on which U.S. Consulate she applied for her visa at. The waiver is decided by the USCIS office that has jurisdiction over the area where the consulate in located. In Mexico, it takes from 2 to 12 months for a waiver to be decided, depending on how strong the waiver case is documented.
