What's the common procedure among US citizens sponsoring their spouses' visa?

Do most people apply for K-1 visa or directly apply for I-130 and I-485?

Could someone kindly enlighten the pros and cons of both along with estimated approval time etc?

Thank you.

Directly I-130 is the best option. K 1 would take almost the same to get here, but have to do the i-130 and i-485 after beneficiary gets here. It will be a lengthy process and highly costly too.

K-1 is fiance visa not the spousal visa so not applicable if already married.
File i130 : 2-5 months of processing time
After i130 approval: NVC processing to visa interview: 3-6 months
Overall: 7 mobths to a year

What's the difference between K1 visa and spousal visa? does k1 visa allow you to work once in the US?
