Default H1B or K1

We are all set to file our K1 when my fiance's employer nows says oh yes we can sponsor you to fill a job nearby. So my question is can we both file for the visas and accept which one comes first? Or can anyone tell me times processing for employer based visas are quicker than a K1? We have been waiting a year for employer to do then finally in March they said no positions available and now just as we get ready to send ours out they say yes they do. I am so upset because no I am back to something out of my control. I do know they can do premium processing for H1B and that takes 15 days but what is it without that? A lot of the timeline pages do not figure the separation of the fiance from the work visa. I could kick myself I should have files in March like I wanted but my fiance wanted to come for one more visit since he could not after I filed. :0(

As you said, ask them to file for premium processing. You could be in the US in less
than 4 weeks.

If they are filing under H-1B, you could be here sooner under Fiance Visa.

You could actually check out the processing times at:
