German family reunion visa for a child from Pakistan

Hi all,
I am a mother of a 15 years old daughter and two sons aged 8 and 7. My sons are with me and my daughter is still in Pakistan. I have applied a Family reunion visa for her in the German Embassy Islamabad. Till now documents verification and interview by a German representative/ Pakistani lawyer has done. I have a Aufenthalt Erlaubnis which I get in Feb 2017 on humanitarian grounds.
I want to know if anybody has the experience to get the family reunion visa for children and how long it will take to get the visa. Please help.
Very thanks.

As far as I know, you can only apply for a family reunion visa if you have Aufenthaltserlaubnis for more than 12 months. For that reason, they often give only 12 months or less nowadays.
It should take 3 - 5 months, but depends on the embassy and the authorities of the German town you live in.
