Current processing times vary, but on average it takes 6 to 9 months for a U.S. to petition a spouse and for that spouse to receive their immigrant visa interview. Filing a K-3 visa petition after the I-130 petition is filed is an option that MAY speed up the process, but only by a few months.

Once the i-130 is approved (2-8 months), then nvc will become involved and it can take a couple of months to file and adjudicate the DS-230 forms.
