I don't really understand your case. I DO know that a new filing procedure is being put in place for overseas I 601's and is supposed to begin very soon. The proposed changes will effect waivers normally filed at overseas USCIS offices, and when announced (probably in the next 4-6wks) all I 601's will have to be mailed to a lock-box here in the US.

All waivers from all over the world will be adjudicated here in the US by approx. 15 adjudicating officers with waiver experience. By doing this, the USCIS hopes to decrease waiting times (with a goal of 6 mos Max.) making the adjudication more uniform for everyone. Another bonus is that we will be able to check status online via the USCIS website.

I have mixed feelings about what might happen, but this is my own personal thought:

In the beginning things will run pretty smooth. I think waivers will be decided in less than 6mos, maybe even 3-4. After about 6-12mos the backlog will set in and waiting times will begin to increase. New adjudicating officers will be brought in, and because of lack of experience/speed, wait times will increase even more. I am hoping to be amongst the first batch of lock-box waiver filers, and share my experience as a learning tool for others in line behind us.

It looks like your wife "overstayed" (ie the time after the 90 days on the K1 runs out, but before she filed AOS) more than 6 months but less than a year, so that would mean she has a 3 year ban and yes, will need a waiver.

You can only file the waiver once she gets denied at interview, and there is now way to speed it up. You'd need to show hardship to you, the US citizen, if she cannot return, and reasons why you cannot live with her abroad.
