Typically 3 months but could go more. No interviews for I-730s.

It is not guaranteed you will get an approval. The petition may also be denied for a number of reasons. Processing times are all listed on

Generally there are not interviews. 3 -5 months is an estimated waiting time. Consult the Dept of State's visa bulletin.
