Significantly more information is needed in order to provide a legal analysis and estimate of the amount of time to be expected for your spouse to be able to come to the United States. This includes, for example, information about your spouse's nationality, your spouse's current location, any immigration-related applications that ever may have been filed by or for your spouse, etc. It would be wise for you and your spouse to consult with an immigration attorney who, after learning all of the relevant information, could advise about eligibilities, options and strategies to attain your goals, and who then provide an estimate of processing time and could offer legal representation in the often complex application process.

Depends on the country. On average, it takes about a year, give or take, but for some countries, administrative processing (background checks to make sure a person is not posing a threat to national security of the U.S.) may take much-much longer.
