Best Answer

It will take about three months for the work permit and social security number to come out, then another three months are needed for the actual green card. In other words, it will take total of 6months or even less as long as your application and the documents are correct and everything is perfectly prepared and sent to the USCIS. It is very important that you send every document correct and flawless. Then, less than 6months is guaranteed.
