Expedite application how and when?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey you all, sorry for opening another topic already!

I have tried it through the search function but havent found anything yet, so I ll try it here. My fiance s health conditions are getting worse (military; suffered brain injury) and his unit decided he can no longer live alone. We are about to file for the k1 visa and i wondered if we have any chance of getting an expedite evaluation and how exactly to do this. Should we send it in with the petition or send another letter later or call the hotline? Is there any form for it or any special procedure? I am a little lost right now

Thank you all again!!

I think people in the military end up having an expedite application at times. Maybe if you added some extra sheets explaining why you need to move with him as soon as possible it would help. Or making photocopies of possible medical visits he had and whatnot. My guess is, if you request for one, and send enough proof maybe you'll get lucky with it?

Anyway, I did a quick search oh Google and found this: http://www.gofianceevisa.com/2012/06/08/expedite-k1-fiance-visa/

hi there.. my fiance is in the Navy and we had our application expedite. NOA 2 on August 12 (we are just waiting for our Manila case number to have medical and interview)

so to answer your question, i think you are eligible for an expedite (since he's in the military and with his health condition)

when you send your I-129f application, attach a letter stating why you are asking for an expedite, a copy of his military id, and proof of his medical conditions (better if you also attach a letter from his superior about an advice of him not being able to live alone and badly needs you sort of stuff like that)

if you have any more question, dont hesitate to email me at marycris_28kit@yahoo.com

Please fill out your timeline as it will help people formulate a specific reply to your situation. Have you even started your application process? If so, have your recieved your NOA1 yet? If so, call the military helpline to request an expedite, when I did I recieved an email response later the same day requesting documents to verify my expidite. Since I was requesting my expedite due to an upcoming deployment, I sent in my "Notification of Deployment Selection" letter, and a cover letter explaining my request. For you, I'd include a cover letter, again explaining the reasons for expedite, a letter from his Commander, and a letter from his doctor (or a medical evaluation if available). I received my approval notification the next day.

Thank you so much for your responses! I m sorry I guess I didnt make it clear, of course I had red the requirements and I was just hoping for anyone having previous experiences with filing for an expedite (because of medical conditions) while being in the military :)

As I mentioned we are about to file for a K1 visa, havent sent it off yet but all documents gathered (just waiting for one more thing). Thats why I wondered if I should ask for an expedite in the initial filing or send it in and THEN call the hotline and ask for it/send it all in? I m worried that if we "just" attach it to the initial filing they arent even opening it earlier because it doesnt say EXPEDITE on the envelope or anything? I m sorry does anyone get what I m trying to say its so hard to explain for me right now :/
