Expedite K1

Hey all,

Just looking for some advice/ opinions... Would it be worth it to try and make an expedite request for my fiance's k-1 visa? I am 32 weeks pregnant and am really freaking out because he most likely will not be here by the time our baby is born. I really don't want to do this alone. Also, I am afraid I am becoming really depressed by our situation... I know you might say I should not have gotten pregnant but sometimes life can't be planned. I know we are all waiting and it really sucks but everyone has a different case story.

I have read that most cases are only expedited if someone is terminally ill or in the military. So, is it worth it to try? Honestly, I feel like I am in an "extreme emergent situation" and will need help taking care of the baby.... Just looking for some advice...

Thanks

Expedite Criteria

All expedite requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and are granted at the discretion of the Director. The burden is on the applicant or petitioner to demonstrate that one or more of the expedite criteria have been met. The criteria are as follows:

  • Severe financial loss to company or individual
  • Extreme emergent situation
  • Humanitarian situation
  • Nonprofit status of requesting organization in furtherance of the cultural and social interests of the United States
  • Department of Defense or National Interest Situation (Note: Request must come from official United States Government entity and state that delay will be detrimental to our Government)
  • USCIS error
  • Compelling interest of USCIS

If you have already filed your application or petition:

You can make an expedite request by contacting the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at 1-800-375-5283. The NCSC will take a "service request" and forward your expedite request to the office with jurisdiction over the application or petition. You also have the options of 1). visiting your local office by scheduling an InfoPass appointment or 2). writing a letter to the local office or service center.

A normal pregnancy is not an emergent situation nor does it qualify for any other of the types of expedites.

You are not in an extreme emmergent situation. This is typically reserved for people on their death beds who wish to have their spouses or fiance's with them. A normal pregnancy is not in the same ballpark as terminally ill

Sorry, a normal pregnancy won't work. You can try (nothing stopping you) but you won't get an expedite

Good luck

So glad to read VJ members from honduras....

My husband and I did expedite our case due to his medical

Conditions and in less than a month we had our NOA2.

As many here advise you, pregnancy is not an extreme situation.

I know you being alone and handeling all this process by

Yourself + with a coming babe is not easy. Personally, I

Do recommen you to try to expedite your case. What will you

Loose? You don't pay any extra fee, just gather all your

Documents frm your doctor, make a letter were you describe

Your situation. If they approve it, excellent and if they

Denied it, well at least you tried and make the effort, just

Don't get to ilusion, cuz there are hight probalities of

Being rejected, but I repeat, at least you tried!

Pregnancy is not a reason for expedition. Sri. Plan for care of the little now, if you are unable.
