Hello Vjers,

I'm just curious to know how long does it usually take for the decision for a K1 expedite request to be granted? I sent an expedite request on 9-24-12 and on the same day was asked to send evidence. Well, on 9-28-12 I sent evidence but winded up having to re-send evidence on 10-1-12 because I realized that my ref ID was off by one digit. Since then I haven't heard anything from them. I've been calling the USCIS practically everyday for an update and not even a Tier 2 can give me an answer as to whether or not a decision has been made. How much longer should I give it before just taking it as a a denial? Most of the Tier2 reps say that they think I will get approved and that the fact that they asked for evidence means that I'm being considered. However, it's still up to the IO reviewing my case and that I should just wait. From looking at different K1s expedited most of the received their answers within five days or a lot sooner. A tier 2 operator put in a request that I receive an answer by next Monday. POSITIVE feedback is gladly accepted.

I think it depends on your reason for an expedite. Some are easily approved because it is clear, others are frivolous and are disregarded. It hasn't been that long since you resent the materials (there are weekends in there too) so I'd wait until the end of next week before you consider it a denial

Good luck

If it is military, it usually gets approved within a couple of days, a week at the most. Anything else receives more scrutiny, espeically if it is a borderline case. Usually you get a decision within 2-3 weeks though.

Actually I saw expedite requests approved a lot sooner and they didnt fall under military deployments. I came across some that were approved within a week or even three days. But for the most part you are right about the deployments.

If it is an expedite for medical reasons, they verify the information before making a decision. There is someone here on VJ that applied due to a serious medical condition and the fiancee needed surgery back in August and was just told that expedite will be processed by December at VSC.

Wow that is so messed up. This immigration process has been the worst thing Ive been through. Especially since my.first petition was denied at the Kingston embassy.
