I would like to file for a fiance visa for my future wife.
I just wanted to know how much the case would cost more or less including all fees of the immigration and lawyer fees. I am a Florida Miami resident and US Citizen.
How long it takes to be ready for the interview from the filing date?
Thank you so much for your help and your time in advance.
Fees will vary with different attorneys. How long it takes will depend largely on you and how quickly you and your fiancé are able to provide the needed documents. Secondly, how long it takes will depend on the US Consulate you will be working with and how many petitions they have in line before you.
I suggest you make phone calls to attorneys to discuss the foregoing information.
Everything you asked is variable.
You should enlist the assistance of an immigration attorney.
And remember the words of the great Smokey Robinson: you better shop around.

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! Fees depend on the facts and circumstances of each case. An attorney will need to discuss the case with you and your fiancee to screen for eligibility and evidence sources before setting a flat fee or retainer amount for an hourly matter. Processing times vary, but you can get a general idea at www.uscis.gov and the website for the consulate where she will process the visa.

The filing fee for USCIS will be same no matter which attorney you hire. The amount an attorney will charge you depends on the attorney. As attorneys, we are not allowed to publicly disclose our fees in forums like this one.
Call several immigration attorneys and ask each one of them how much they would charge. As to timeframe, that depends on how soon you can have all necessary documentation and the consular post where your wife resides (which country).
Many of us offer a free initial consultation. Best of luck and congrats on the upcoming wedding!
