Yes it can take some time from the filing of the initial I-129F alien fiance(e) petition at the CIS service center to the K-1 visa interview at the consulate/embassy. Generally though, the process is completed in 6-12 months depending on variables. Such as: If there is any name hits or security issues with the background/security checks, if there is delays caused by information and evidence submitted not being complete, and ultimately how long the individual consulate/embassy takes in scheduling interviews, etc. There is quite long wait times for interviews at certain consulates/embassies e.g. Philippines, Dominican Republic. Also, depending on how smoothly the process goes and on the wait times for interviews, a K visa can be in hand as early as 4 months. There has been reports of such.
See the processing times for the initial petition by using the Case Status Online and Processing Times link at www.uscis.gov Look for the link on the left hand side. For great information, experiences, resources, and support with your immigration process, I recommend

There is no national waiting period since the instant background check years ago. In most states, you can go into a gun store, buy a gun and leave with it within a few minutes.

If you are under 21 years of age, you will need to show your birth certificate. Applicants between 16 and 18 years of age, along with a 3-day waiting period, will need to have both parents with them at time of application to sign an approval affidavit. If either of you are under 16 years of age, you can't get married without a waiver from the Juvenile Court.

A period of time can be anything. A period could be a month long, and some could be a billion years. The dictionary defines period as a length or portion of time. So, really any amount of time.

There is no single word in English for a period of 300 years. Three centuries. As an adjective, or a noun referring to the anniversary of 300 years, you could use tricentennial.

There is no waiting period after a divorce to remarry. Once you have applied for a marriage license Mississippi has a seventy-two (72) hour waiting period. This can be waived by a judge of any court in the judicial district where either of the applicants live and if they are over 21 years of age.

There is no name for 500 years. But you could call it 5 centuries or half a Millennium.

It's just five years, but you could say "Half a decade" if you want to be fancy.

The age of consent in Pennsylvania is 16 years of age. Parental approval is not required. Parents cannot give permission to break the law. Doing so could actually bring them up on criminal charges.

This Act expired and is no longer law. However, when initially passed it mandated a five day waiting period, ostensibly to allow the government to check on the background of the person applying to own the firarm. After five years it died out as a nationwide instant background check system was implemented and the 5 day wait period was abolished.

The period of 100 years is called a century. A period of 10 years is a decade, and 1000 years is a millennium.

No, it is not. Most likely, you didn't get it. It could have been a practice period, just a little to show you are growing.

They apply for a visa. Because they were deported, there may be fines and a long waiting period (3 to 5 years).
