This is a long process. Depending on the Service Center that is processing the I 130, the approval of the I130 can take 7 to 12 months .. you then have the NVC phase where you submit all the beneficiary documentation , the interview and an unspecified period after the interview of AP.. administrative processing. Use this time to read thoroughly all the USCIS information regarding the process, do the same with the vj guides, ask specific questions do people are best able to  assists you. Make sure your timeline is complete and up to date as many answers to often asked questions are very specific to country , Consulate etc and the unique details of your situation

As reported by other Visa Journey members the average time from the first I-797 to the interview is 433 days....after the interview, there is a possibility of additional administrative processing time........immigration requires a great deal of knowledge, planning, time, patience, and money......

okay let me know if expedite will help in fasting the process ?

my wife is not working over there in USA so it will make any problem in visa or process ?



There's no shortcuts in the immigration process. Time and patience is the key to things. If you're reason to expedite doesn't fall in the requirements it will be denied. 

Why don't you have your wife create an account and she can ask questions. 

Getting an attorney wouldn't speed anything up. The lack of employment will create additional hurdles later in the process. 

Just have a mindset of waiting. Waiting and waiting. Communicate with your wife get to know each other because constant communication is needed. If you focus your conversations on immigration you will probably cause arguments, there's no speeding anything up. 

Remember you're going to waiiiitt a lot. like all of us have, but some might have waited longer, some waited shorter, but have the mindset of waiting the longest and just read and read everything you can on all the threads here. 

Just to repeat.. there's no shortcuts.

She will need a joint sponsor to get you there since there is an income/tax requirement at the NVS stage. 

 

Filing for a I-129f - K3 *may* make getting the I-130 approved slightly faster. 

 

Having a lawyer isn’t really going to expedite the process as far as I know.

No visible means of support makes the process more difficult 


YMMV
