thanks for the info - i also checked the USCIS processing times and it seems to be about 6 months for I130 stage, and the time the next step (family based I485) was not given there.

Yes, even in this case my friends parents are not sure how long they will be able to stay at a time (initially - ultimately they would like to move here, but not right away i believe) -- so they'll need to figure out how much of a hassle it is to "maintain" permanent residence status (by filing waivers etc) - and whether they may want to delay applying in case the hassle is non trivial.
