How long would it take for an illegal alien to get a work permit after getting married to a greencard holder?

From my experience, it could take up to a year. The immigration process is slow now due to post 9/11. This includes waiting on a work permit. Always keep contact with them and make sure they don't make mistakes. It is possible because they have to many immigration issues to process.
