Contacting Congressional Rep:

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've heard elsewhere that contacting a congressional representative can speed up the K-1 process. Can a representative do something after just a couple of months? I am living with my fiance abroad as we are waiting this for this process to play out. We have a 10 month old baby together (who is a US citizen) & I recently lost my income source here. Although I would hate to jump in line, I do not have enough savings to wait the entire process out and I cannot stand the thought of being away from my baby for 4 or 5 more months if I go back home to look for a job. Do you think there is anything a congressional representative could do to help?

A representative cannot really "do anything" at any time. USCIS does not report to the Congress and due to the constitution's separation of powers there is nothing a congressperson can do directly but make an inquiry. You cn contact your elected representatives at any time for any reason.

Your representative will likely tell you that you should come back and get a job so you can submit the papers necessary to show you will support your fiance. Your baby is a US citizen and can go with you.

Unless USCIS has made some documentable errors their is nothing a Congressperson can demand of them.

It does no harm to contact your congressman. They will make a congressional inquiry about your case. However don`t get your hopes up. It usually takes a real emergency to get your case expedited. If being away from loved ones is a reason to expedite a case then almost everyones case would be expedited. However you have nothing to lose by contacting him and everything to gain. So my advice is to try but don`t expect much to happen.

Not really. A congressperson can make an inquiry, but cannot move you ahead. If so, everyone would make a plea because of their circumstances.

Off topic: Are you prepared for the affidavit of support?
