Yup, it's a waiting game. Most I-129F applications get a decision in about 5-7 months. That's only for the application, from that point you go over in the NVC/consulate phase. See the guides on this forum, for example https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow.

You can check the estimated processing times of your SC via https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/

Can make a USCIS account and check your case status with them using the case number on your NOA1 from USCIS.

 

Once that states approved, they will send you a hard copy of the approval, or NOA2.

 

Then will go to NVC stage which will assign a new country specific case number. With that you can track the petition through the CEAC page.

 

Each country is different in how they do things with the petition from medical to setting appointment so you'll want to find Ukraine specific information for that stage for the embassy.

Waiting, with zero communication, is the bane of existence for all members here.  At every stage in the immigration journey, you wait, some way longer than others.

 

If you got an NOA conforming acceptance, sit back and relax for a few months.  :)

When I was in the Navy, this was a very important thing to do so that I can have everything prepared and quadruple checked, ready to file whenever I wasn't sailing. Some are able to do the AOS quickly, but, with all of the problems with how everything is defined and how important it is to study up on every immigration law pertaining to your immigration path, it is worth it.

Not doing so leaves room for errors. Errors are even more costly. Especially since the tiniest mistake could give USCIS probable cause to deny any application no matter how authentic the relationship may be.

Current income and ability to support the new immigrant is determined by current income documents (pay stubs, employment letters, etc.)......not past tax filings....remember, your current and future income matters.
