Can a F4 Petition get expedited?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This question is for a good friend of mine who asked to help them . Basically she filed for her brother and his family, things changed somehow the brother and his family are getting threats from their local government due to his political views. Is this enough evidence to convince DOS to expedite the process ?

Or is there any way they can expedite this process? -- Please help.

Presumably the visa number is current?

Feasible...Call NVC / DOS and talk to a tier 2 Supervisor.

Thank you Visa Grant - I see you are one the Kings in this room :) .. Can you please add some more light here that how should the person who call pose the question - do you think an email to NVC or DOS is enough ? By the way the petitioner received NOA1 it means the file has not been moved to NVC, correct? it has been over a year since they have filed the petition, don't you think its still with USCIS field center?

I doubt they will expedite the F4.

Maybe they should try this one: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=1f1c3e4d77d73210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=1f1c3e4d77d73210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD

Sounds like it will be another 11 years before there is anything to expedite.

The priority date cannot be expedited. If the priority date is current, then an expedite could happen for the few months it would normally take the paperwork to get processed.

There could be an expedite of the I130 approval but it would do nothing as the priority date is NOT changeable by expedite.( 12 years or so ) and then the interview could be expedited after the priority date is current.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

You can try for a refugee visa.

Hmmmm.... This means there is no way . The beneficiary of this friend is now living in temporary places fearing they might get arrested because of their political views. Is that not enough evidence?

Evidence for what?

To expedite the family visa: no. because it CANNOT be expedited.

To get a refuge visa: I have little experiencw with that. If he has concrete evidence, (personal as well as news reports, whatever it says on the state dept website about his country)- maybe.

I remember reading about the process, I think it is run by the UNHCR.

None of this is relevant until a visa number is available.
