expedite request for non-military

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance called USCIS this afternoon to follow up on our case since it's already past the 5 month waiting period. They said that he should wait 30 more days to get a notice. Obviously he doesn't want to wait so he requested for an expedite and they gave him a receipt number. Would that actually work? I just can't really believe that they have since he's not in the military. Has anyone here been told of the same thing before? :huh:

it may work if u have a reason for an expedite or it may be processed shortly. We filed for an expedite and they just sent us an email requiring evidence so we faxed that in today now we await a decision.

here are the expedite criteria

Expedite Criteria

I don't think a 5 month backlog is going to fit into the above criteria, there are a lot of petitions at the 5 month or longer time-frame.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

No, it would not work, unless you meet the expedite requirements and can prove that you do.

When they send you the mail requesting proof you will have nothing to prove that you are eligible for expedite, sorry.

OH. :( Darn it! So when they give you the reference number, it doesn't mean that it's already up for an expedite. I wish they could just tell you then that these are the criteria and if your case don't suit any of them then you don't get an expedite. :bonk: I was thinking we got lucky or something. So much for having a glimpse of hope. Thanks ya'll for the responses. I appreciate it! And the waiting continues........ :clock:

Hi.

My fiance's dad is sick, he is having dialysis currently because of diabetes. And his step mom is in the ICU receiving blood transfers almost daily (we dont know why, but we are thinking, its complications) can this be considered as one of the expedite criteria? He took his emergency leave for a week (Feb 26-Mar5, flew all the way from Hawaii to CA because of this and because his dad send him sms through the red cross. He is in the military, we are thinking to call them and tell them about this. but before doing so, we're not sure if this is an enough reason to be expedited.

Help please.


We never get tired of reminding each other that our love is stronger than anything else..Jay&Cici

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope both of them gets better soon. I am not sure, but it wouldn't hurt to try, you know. I say, just call them.

Him being military will not make any difference unless he is deploying to an active combat zone.

You might be able to get expedite for the medical issues tho dialysis is a daily occurring thing. You will need proof of the medical issues and the severity, it will have to be some pretty serious medical conditions to get the expedite based on that. You can call and request one from USCIS and they will send you mail asking for the proofs and then you will wait and see if they accept your proofs.
