Hi - has anyone ever expedited AP under the USCIS reasons for expedite?

I know that there are two reasons listed for emergency AP, which I don't think he qualifies for. But he qualifies for 2 of the USCIS expedite reasons which I have no doubt I can prove. I read that this can be attempted but I'm curious if 1) anyone has done it 2) how long did it take 3) can you make an info pass appointment based on this request

Make an info pass appointment and see what can be done. You can only get the emergency Ap provided you have already applied for your AoS.be prepared with evidence.

Hello All,

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this!

We had our interview (Me and my husband) for immigrant visa this last thursday (Aug 13). The lady told us that our case was approved by the consular and she gave us a paper that says congratulations and wish you a happy life at America. Also she told us that we will receive our passport within 7 days. After about 5 days we received our passports from aramex with no visas stamped and there was a white paper that requested a general information about me (and we submitted all the information via email as the paper indicated) and a yellow one with a X mark on administrative processing.

What I want you to help me with is: is it normal to approve our case and then returned our passport with no visa and as I know if they want to put us under AP they should keep our passports until the AP is complete, is that right?

I wish that you can help with this!

You need your case number for AOS and proof of the emergency. They won't even try to help you if you don't have the case number. I'm currently desperately trying to get the case number but the answer is "it's not been 10 business days yet so I don't give a about your emergency".

Thanks for the tip. Is the AOS case number the same as the receipt number?

Yes I did. They gave it to me on the spot. I just went to the USCIS office and got the AP in my hand within an hour.
