I'm a US citizen and trying to fix my wife he legal status
The new provisional waiver allows you to get a "yes" or "no" answer whether the waiver will be granted BEFORE your wife leaves the country. If her waiver is approved, she will leave the U.S. to interview. It is anticipated that as long as there are no other issues with her visa application that immigrants will spend weeks outside the U.S. rather than months or years.
BUT these waivers are extremely difficult to get unless you can prove extreme hardship to a U.S. citizen relative. Don't go it alone. I highly recommend using a qualified immigration attorney who can help you prepare a convincing application.
