You do the biometrics then you get a notice for the interview, which is necessary for the greencard. Make sure they have your correct mailing address so that you are notified of the interview, or you will be denied and have to appeal or start again. You can go to www.uscis.gov and they have a chart of expected time frames for various types of things in various regions. They are guidelines only, the time can be less or more. You can also go online and check the status of your petition if you have your receipt number.

It appears that you filed an I-360 Petition as an abused spouse. Is that correct? And is your spouse a U.S. Citizen?
USCIS is backlogged on VAWA cases. Current estimates for processing these cases is about 18 months, but each individual case could be longer or shorter.
I suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney about your case.

Generally speaking, it can be many months before your VAWA petition will be adjudicated. 12-18 months is not uncommon. Assuming it is approved you will then be scheduled for an interview at a local USCIS Field Office. The amount of time the latter takes will depend upon the current processing times at that office.
