What is the processing time for re-entry permit for a Permanent Resident?

Asked over 1 year ago - Corona, CA

I would like to apply for a re-entry permit for my son who is 13 years old. He's been here in America for more than 3 years now. Reason for his longer stay in the Philippines is for him to study there. Can this reason be granted for re-entry permit?
