Hey everybody! First I would like to thank you all for the big support here. I've got so many helpful answers!

So, I was reading some posts and started wondering if USCIS aproves faster the cases in which the petitioner and beneficiary have a child together, or if it doesn't matter to them. For exemple, my husband and I have a 4 month old daughter and I doubt I can get a tourist visa to visit him. He can't leave work again to visit us, so my last hope is that they look at our case and think "uhm, let's not keep this family appart for too long" and approve our petition in 2 weeks (Ok, that would be a liiittle too much to ask for). :bonk:

I'm not saying the couples that don't have kids don't deserve to have their petition approved fast, I know everybody here wants and deserves to be with the loved ones. It was just something that crossed my mind and I decided to ask.

Good luck to you all!

good one!! They really work with the procedures and laws set in place without going for the " emotional" angle. When they receive your I-130 petition, it is put in a queue and it's really up to you to bring to their attention your expedite or an actual officer to review your case and grant it faster than others.

So no they don't approve your I-130 if they see you have a child BUT if you scream and holler, they may consider an expedite.

No, having children does not entitle you to faster processing. And no, an expedite because you have a child together is not an option either, no matter how loud you scream and holler. Expedites are for life and death emergencies or those pending active military deployment.

Good luck - sorry for the wait, we've all been through it and we know it stinks!

Sorry hun, doesn't work that way.

Expedites are considered only in emergency cases like a humanitarian crisis or military deployment. Having a kid together doesn't entitle you to faster processing times. If it did, most of us would be happy to churn out several of them. Furthermore, it doesn't prove much other than the fact that the petitioner and beneficiary had sex together one night.
