What you are looking for is a request to expedite your petition. You might be able to get it approved on the basis of your mothers health and that you are overwhelmed with her needs and the needs of your children ( assuming you children aren't adults )


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

First, turn of the CAPS LOCK, then click on the word "Guides" at the top of any page here. Study carefully. If your husband was ever in the US illegally, there will be further complications, in that the visa will be initially denied and you'll need to file a hardship waiver after denial. Your mother's condition is probably not a reason for expediting the case unless it has a direct impact on YOU. They don't care if your husband gets to see her. If they did, everybody's mother would be sick.

As you study, simply ignore any reference to a K3 visa unless it confirms the K3 is no longer available.

You're wrong about that. Check out the profile for David & Kezia. If you click to see all there comments, and look at the last one on the bottom, you will see they expidited based on David's mom having cancer. They got NOA2 in 1.5 months while everyone else is waiting 5 months.

Has your husband been in the states illegally before?

What is this, a game of words? Why would you tell someone probably not, when it is very possible? It sounds to me like she has a great chance with kids and taking care of her mother.

Because I have considerable experience in these matters and I have a different opinion. You're entitled to yours.

Pushbrk is almost never wrong, friend James. I personally wish that a lot more VJ members would heed his advice in regard to many matters.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Pushbrk is almost never wrong, friend James. I personally wish that a lot more VJ members would heed his advice in regard to many matters.

I would agree that he usually has great advise. I've seen that many times. However, here is a case where a wife with children and a mom on her death bed needs her husband. I sited a recent case where a USC brought his fiancee here on expidite because his mom was sick and wanted to see them together before she died. If they will expidite in that case, then why not for a married couple with children. If there is any chance of getting an expidite, wouldn't you suggest trying? I know I would try if I could. Not everybody would do this as he said either, since most people aren't caring for a parent who is close to death.

I wasn't trying to be rude by disagreeing. If he would have said it was possible, but hard, and told her that some people have been able to expidite for that reason, then I would have agreed with him. Instead, he only said improbably. That doesn't give her much hope and could mislead her into not even trying to see how other people were able to do it.

You might be right about the end result but your assessment is not in conflict with what I wrote. Read the sentence you're disagreeing with and pay close attention to the part that comes after the word "unless". I like to think folks can understand the meaning of complete sentences. Those who can't, probably aren't qualified to manage their own visa process. Just saying.

Also, sometimes (often actually) expedites are granted for reasons other than the primary emotionally expressed reasons for requesting them. What the mother "wanted" in the case you mentioned may not have been considered at all by whomever granted the expedite. They tend to strip out the emotion and focus on the facts.

If you want a reference for the concept, Google, "Post hoc, ergo propter hoc" and have a read.

Ok. I concede. I shouldn't have said you were wrong.

Don't know about you but I've found that "coincidental correlation" is the most common logical fallacy engaged in by humans (because it's so convenient) and that over-reaction is one of the most common of traits, even in humans as advanced as yours truly. good.gif I'm better at avoiding the former than that latter.
