It will most likely take a couple of years to get your family in the USA. You are an LPR, not a citizen and so things will happen slower compare to it you were the US citizen. So, depending how long you have been an LPR, you can apply for the US citizenship; once naturalized, contact CIS and let them know that you are a citizen.
