Work and spouse visa processing time

Hi all,

I am an Indian citizen, with a student visa for Germany. I am in Antwerp to complete my thesis at a company. Hopefully, I might have an offer from a company. My questions here are:

1. What is the processing time for a work permit/work visa? How early can I start working?
2. How much time do I need to wait before applying for my wife's visa (long term)? Like many payslips do I need to show? or If there is anything else that I am missing?
3. I have read that couples have applied for a visa together from India and the chances were high, that they got early approval. But since I will be in Antwerp, how can I reduce the processing time for my wife's visa?

Thanks in advance.
