Military...waiting for new post

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey!

I have just read someones post on here with regards to times and how it's taking such a long time etc...However someone mentioned that if you join the military you automatically get put before others...is this true? My fiance is in US Coast Guard and at this moment in time we are waiting to find out where his new post will be - it could be anywhere within the US. As you can imagine we are both getting worried about this as nothing has been sent and no "touched" has been logged on the website - I am worried about that too - I see people commenting about their documents being "touched" and ours haven't.

Does anyone have any hope for the VSC being made quicker with the paperwork?

Hello,

Ok, with the military involved it's all dependent on the situation. I don't think it matters too much, but there is a military USCIS hotline that you can call and get information from. The number is 1-877-247-4645, usually they will grant expedite if he is going to be deployed downrange soon or is already on deployment. But you can have him call and talk to them directly, my case was expedited due to me just asking for it, I wasn't being deployed or anything, just asked and I was approved for the expedite. So each case is different. I wish you good luck on your journey and Allah bless.

Asking over the phone gets the fastest response.

Just because someone is military does not mean they get put before others automatically - there have been plenty of active duty people that have had to wait just as long as everyone else. Even people who were in active combat in Iraq.

From what i've noticed, unless the service member is deployed overseas, they'll treat your case just like everyone else. When we filed for k-1 last year and my husband was stationed in ft hood, it took 7 mos before we got our noa2 . After we got married , he deployed to south korea and filed our aos which took 80 days only to get approved. Goodluck!
