If you are filing for cr1/ir1 your application should not take more than 8-9 months overall, unless you got some complication in your case.

Your case would not be expedited just coz you are missing your kid, that is not a valid reason for your case to be expedited.

If USCIS would start accepting that as the valid case to expedite, pretty much all the application would have to be expedited as most couples who go thru this process are apart and missing out on family life.

The only reason the case is expedited is either you (USC) is on active military duty, medical emergency, or a humanitarian cause, such as some hardship in the host country which is life threatening.

Hey I said I didnt like it.... I didnt say hey i should have got it... I know what the reasons are and financial hardship is one of them you forgot to mention... I work and support my family there and i have to live here too, which is very expensive and is a financial hardship...I dont need you to tell me thats not a good reason about my son to be expedited, i know everyone misses their family... I was pointing out the fact that i am missing important parts of my sons young life whereas its not just me trying to get my wife here... I do believe there should be a small center for expedited cases though.... that way mine and other cases dont get delayed bc of someone else getting an expedite. The whole system could be more efficient.

Hi

I sent my visa application form in in Jan 2011. Heard nothing. My husband has just recieved his orders to leave in July. We have rang the embassy and been told they are only just dealing with applications from Dec 2010!! We have been told if we think we have grounds to expedite the visa to put it in writing so we sent our letter today on the gounds of financial and the fact that we have a 6 month son and another on the way. Do you know of anything else we could do?? Jo

Your case is already at NVC, is that correct?

If so, go ahead , ask for expedite, it's the Embassy who approves it or not. And yes hardship may not kill but causes tons of damages.

Good luck

Dude if you dont like the facts then I can't help it - but tell us one thing if they create a small/large center for expedite process, why won't the rest of ppl send their application for expedited process?

Everyone wants their visa process first, have you come across anyone who says ahhh USCIS can take their sweet time I dont care?

In my 15 years of dealing with immigration I have never come across anyone like that, most wants their visa as soon as possible.

As explained in my earlier post, having a kid does not meet the criteria - coz if they started doing that everyone who is waiting in the line (spouse) will start having baby to get their case expedited.

Supporting both families on both shore is not a hardhsip either, before you made a deicsion to get married to someone from your home country and you knew the timeframe required for it.

No just to his next command in the states

If the deployment is not in combat zone, then it might not work.

I meant a place that the uscis sends it to if its going to be an expedited case... Instead of the regular center so that applications are done without anyone skipping that line, but apparently your light shines a little dim. For example if there was another natural disaster and all of those cases got expedited and cut the line in front of everyone then yes i think they should have a center just for those cases. But your so smart you thought I meant hey lets just send all our applications to the expedite place... This will be my last post here... you an idiot.

An approved expedite pulls the application from it's place in line and puts it into the currently being worked pile. There is no separate facility for processing expedited applications. If your spouse were being deployed to a combat area then you would have a chance but simply PCSing within the US does not qualify.

The type of visa, 2 year of 10 year, will be determined when you enter the US and the length of time you have been married at that point.

Hope this answers your questions.
