Default 365 to 395 days?!

A couple of weeks ago I filed a petition (I-130) for my wife who is a
foreign national to get a permanent resident visa. Just today I
received a notice of action from BCIS including this estimate "It
usually takes 365 to 395 days to process..."
I know it takes a long time for permanent resident's petitions, but
from what I've learned so far it usually takes much less than a year
for US citizens, therefore I'm kind of confused about this notice...

I would love to hear from other US citizens who filed a petition for
their foreign spouses fairly recently.

Any thoughts appreciated.

TIA

If your wife is outside the country, once you have the receipt for filing I-130 you can apply for her to come over on a K-3 visa. This is a visa designed for people to bring foreign spouses to the US so they can be together while they wait out the lengthy I-130 adjudication.

Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot, I totally forgot about the K visas...

The next question is will she have to go back to a consulate in her
country of origin to attend the visa interview once the I-130 is
processed and approved or not?

TIA
