We did some research and found that, it will take around 4 months to 10 months if everything is ok. I mean if you have all the required documents and the officers does not ask for anything else.
If anything is missing then it will take time that nobody can tell you.
Thanks

Found Somewhere in another thread. It might help you:

Please take a look at my cover letter. My case is a little different: B2 in 2001, married 4/2017 and marriage based. The only issue I would see is with Affidavit of Support. Since both of you are graduate students, I do not believe you are working or making enough. So you will either have to get a sponsor (like someone in her family). The I-485 and I-130 do have a fee of $1,760. For the medical exam, it is form I-693 and you have to go to a USCIS certified doctor and unfortunately pay the fee which can range from $100-$300. If you have your immunization shots, bring those with you. They will run examine you physically (very basic), test you for tuberculosis, take your urine sample and blood sample.
