She can file for you as a husband. It will take several years for you until you can file for your green card. Then when she is a US citizen, you will upgrade to immediate relative. At that point, you can file for your green card right away.

You wife can petition for you as green card holder. processing time varies with time and service center. You can get the updated info on www.uscis.gov. However, petitioning may be challenging because you bear the burden to prove your marriage. You may need a lawyer if you don't want to be denied. You are welcome to contact us. Good luck!
