How long do you have to wait to file for K1 visa if being petitioned and case is closed by requester?

My boyfriend’s sister petitioned for a green card for him a few years ago. He has been told that the case is open but might take 6 more years to be reviewed. We are going to ask her to close/drop the petition so I can apply for the K1 visa for him. Would we have to wait after the case is closed for me to file for the K1 visa and how long? I have reached out to a few local lawyers but they want me to schedule a meeting and I rather save my money for when am ready to file. Any help is appreciated. I live in the state of New Hampshire and he is in Dominican Republic. Thank you in advance.
