Hello,

Allow me to explain our situation. We got married in November of last year in Armenia. Followed the instructions and filed an I130 at the Chicago lockbox. USCIS received it on December 10, 2014 of last year. I was in Armenia for a little over three months and I filed from there, and put down my Armenia address. Got the form I797 in late December stating that my case is being processed at the Nebraska service center.

I am now back in the states, and my wife has been pregnant for 10 weeks now. She's all by herself and this separation is very hard on us, especially her. Everytime we talk (and we talk everyday), she cries. She can't sleep well and she throws up often. She's very sensitive and this pregnancy situation doubles her sensitivity. A week ago I called USCIS and asked them to expedite it due to the fact that she's pregnant and has no one to look after her. I just got a letter from them today stating that my request for expedite has been denied. I don't know what else I can do. I would love to go back and stay with her until the visa is approved, but I just got a job and I'm barely making an income. Besides, I am paying for her rent and living expenses. Should I write to my state representative and explain our situation? Will he/she be of any help? Can anyone here give me any advice? Thank you.

Pregnancy is not a basis for an expedite.

She has no family or friends who can help?

Hi Boiler,

Thanks for your reply. She has a family far away in another city. It is cold there, services are a few, and it's a 1 bedroom small apartment. We rented an apartment in the capital city of Yerevan where she stays now.

Sounds like she is missing family and friends, could they visit?
