I married couple of months ago and My wife is in abroad.

can anyone tell me which form should I fill ir1 or cr1

TIA

Try to use the guides https://www.visajourney.com/cr1-ir1-spousal-visa/

In your case you should file for CR1

The process is the same for CR-1 or IR-1.  If the immigrant spouse enters the US  before 2 years of marriage, he/she is classified as CR-1 (and would receive a conditional 2 year green card).  If the immigrant spouse enters the US on or after 2 years of marriage, the he/she would be classified as IR-1 (and would receive a 10 year green card).

Yes, start with the guides and form instructions.  IR1 and CR1 are not forms.

Either way you will submit an I-130 and I-130a along with all the additional documents stated in the I-130 instructions. Since you have only been married a couple months it will automatically be filed as a CR1, but you fill out and submit the same petition and documents no matter which one it is.

Small correction.  You file a petition package, for a spouse.  It is neither filed as CR1 or IR1.  It's just a petition for alien relative.  Which visa is applied for or issued, depends on the timing of doing so only AFTER the petition is approved, as does the status granted upon US entry.  Those two forms are the minimum number of forms that will be filed but what will go with them is based on circumstances.  Careful study of the form instructions will be critical to getting the package right and/or complete.
