How long until my mother-in-law could sponsor her husband on an immigration visa?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Needham, MA

My mother-in-law was married to her husband after my wife turned 18, so my wife would not be able to sponsor him on an i-130. If my wife were to sponsor her mother, how long would it take before her mother could bring her husband over on an immigration visa?
