Hi,

My parents have been lawful permanent residents for 4 years and have been traveling back and forth between the US and home country. The reason they haven't been able to live in the US premanently (although they loveee to) is because of my mother takes care of my father(partially blind and have heart problems) and older brother who has epilepsy and need constant care. So my mother has to be with them together to take care of them constantly. My mother applied I-130 for my older brother and we have been waiting for visa number to be available. Is it possible for my mother to ask for expedite I-130 based on her hardship? and if an expedite I-130 is approved , does USCIS start processing the visa to my brother right away?

Thank you very much,

You can apply for an expedite once the priority date is current, but not before- the processing can be expedited, not the waiting time. She could try for a tourist visa for the brother in the meantime?

The expediate requires you prove hardship to "the usc" which you lack.

Thank you very much,

Unfortunately, you cannot apply for expedite until you are current. Even then, it can be difficult. We tried to get an expedite when we were current because the beneficiary (minor child of LPR)lost her father and had no parent to take care of her, even then they said no.. we had to just live with the pain and my mother pays someone to take care of her there and travels 1x per year. I guess we must be patient, I know its hard. Good luck.

She may have trouble getting a visa for him even when current if she is not living in the US. She may also lose her GC at that point, or sooner.
