Does this qualify for expedition process?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm brand new here but I have lurked for awhile. Please help me as I am a virtual baby to this whole process.

Here's the story....I am female from the US and my fiance is from Tunisia. We meet all of the qualifications for the K1 visa, so no problems with that.

I just sent my completed paperwork to a visa assistance company and got confirmation that they received it. I think that was August 3rd or so.

Here is the issue. My fiance is living in Tunisia and just this past Friday has fractured his shoulder in a freak accident. He also fractured his other shoulder in a car accident a year ago. On top of that, Kairouan, Tunisia has been having daily power outages causing him to suffer from extreme heat on a daily basis. sidenote: I have become physically ill since this latest fracture. I have nausea/vomiting/diarrhea which affects my daily functioning. In other words, I am just sick about him being hurt over there with no help and in that terrible heat.

everyone in Africa suffers this heat and in winter they sit in house in coats and winter hats as apartments and houses are not heated

it doesn't make them qualify for faster service

I don't say this to be mean

i have been there 6 trips in the heat of summer and cold of winter

telling immigration he has injuries could back fire

Have you sought psychiatric help?

Has he considered moving?

He has lived there his whole life right? I'm sorry, but heat is not a reason to expedite.

I am sorry he is injured, but if you file an expedite, how do you expect to pay for the cost of his medical treatment? One may think he'll be a public charge.

good luck

Assuming he has it strapped up etc there probably is only a check up needed very now and then until it heals.

These are the criteria for an expedite > http://www.uscis.gov/forms/expedite-criteria

It won't hurt you to try and ask for one. All they can do is deny it, and your case will remain processing as usual. Your petition might not take too long to be processed anyway. Some people are getting approvals in a couple months.

The expedite process is only for the USCIS part, those who are expedited still have to wait at the NVC and embassy stages. Even if you were approved an expedite, he probably wouldn't get to the US till well after the summer is over.

Can you go visit him while you wait?

Good luck!

Some may just start breaking body parts to get an expedite.

Just saying.

Or doing away with air conditioning.

The heat index has been hovering between 130 and 160 the past few weeks in Iran. Many people dying, electrical blackouts everywhere, water shortages.
