Recommended Posts

Hey!

im about to file the I-129f and i am just wondering if i would get accepted to get the visa expedited. my fiancee lives in torreon mexico, its the number 7 most dangerous city in the world and her safety worries me. she hasn't had any encounters yet but we know several people that have had problems. I would like to visit her more but my safety also is a problem when i visit her. there are gun fights quite often and i dont want her or me to be at risk. I would like to know if this is a legitimate reason to get the visa expedited.

also when i send the I-129F packet how would i request to get it expedited? or do i request it after they have accepted it and i receive the case number? i would like to do it as smooth as possible.

i look forward to hearing what you guys think and receiving help in any way. thanks you all and best luck to all of you in your visa journey!!!

I think this is under the wrong catagory but:

First of all.. Since you have'nt even Filed yet you do not exist in any frame to USCIS..

After you File and get a NOA1 then make your request.

Thats my thought.

Good Luck.

No. Based on this your case will not be expedited. Sorry. And for visiting, is there a safer place where you two can meet? Expedited cases are usually for people who are in the military deploying from my understanding of threads I've read. I pray your visa journey goes smoothly and that your fiancee remains safe.

No this is not grounds for expedite. there are people who live in war torn countries who do not qualify for expedite. For example, one of my very good friend's husband is from Damascus,Syria, Syria is embroiled in a vicious civil war, hundreds and thousands of innocent people being killed on a daily basis, they can't even leave their homes. He didn't qualify for expedite for his I-130 or CR-1 process. It is by far A LOT more dangerous than your girlfriend's situation. USCIS doesn't care if you don;t feel safe about visiting, meet in another city where it is, or don;t visit at all.

if he doesn;t feel safe visiting, he doesn;t have to. This is not grounds for an expedite.

Has she thought about moving to somewhere else in Mexico?

By all means, you can try to have your case expedited. The worst that could happen, would be that it is denied, which I feel that it will. My fiance also lives in Mexico, and I lived there with him for a year and a half, so I know firsthand what goes on there. It is very scary, but taking the correct precautions, risks are less. In the eyes of USCIS, this is not an emergency, but merely an inconvenience. When evaluating the request for expedition, they want to see true emergencies, where time is crucial. Examples of that would be military deployment (being the most common reason), a medical emergency (such as a major operation or prolonged treatments for things such as cancer and so forth), or actual PROOF of personal threats (not just what "could" happen, but proof that it HAS or WILL happen). The reason these standards are set by USCIS, is for the fact that all of us could write them sob stories of how our separation is affecting us and the many scenarios that might happen, and it would not give USCIS adequate times to correctly and fairly process everyone's application submitted. They would spend numerous hours, just reading our pleas for expedition which would in turn back the entire process up for many more months or years of waiting, for all. Again, this is your own personal choice, if you want to submit the expedite request. But I would not get my hopes up or make any plans. Good luck in your journey!

HOLA, YO TAMBIÉN SOY DE TORREÓN Y AUN CUANDO LA SITUACIÓN ES DIFÍCIL MI PROMETIDO HA VENIDO A VERME A TORREÓN TRES VECES Y UNA EN MONTERREY QUE TAMBIÉN ES UNA CIUDAD PROBLEMÁTICA, NO CREO QUE SE PUEDA AGILIZAR EL TRÁMITE. YO ENTIENDO QUE AL IGUAL QUE TODOS NOSOTROS, USTEDES QUIEREN ESTAR JUNTOS PRONTO, TENGAN MUCHA FE Y CONFIANZA EN QUE SALDRÁN ADELANTE. BENDICIONES.

As its not in English like it should be, here is a translation for those of us that don't understand Spanish.

Hi I'm from TORREÓN and although the situation is difficult My fiance came to see me to Torreon THREE TIMES AND ALSO IN MONTERREY IS A CITY PROBLEM, NOT think you can expedite the process. I understand that like all of us, YOU WANT TO BE TOGETHER SOON, have great faith and confidence that will thrive. BLESSINGS.
