Request to expedite

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I completed our application in early June and we received NOA 1 on June 16th. In our application, I included a letter of "Request to Expedite", on the grounds of severe financial loss due to lost working time because of my pregnancy and impending childbirth at the end of October.

I was under the assumption that I would receive a letter of decision regarding this request, even if it were denied. Because I have had no communication from the TSC, it seems as though my letter has not been read yet. Can I call the hot line for information on this? Has anyone else experienced this? Any thoughts or input would be appreciated!

Hello! I never really experience this nor did we expedite our process before but I will suggest that you better call USCIS and tell them you want to expedite your case and state your reason. If they would be OK they would ask for evidence of the claim, they might ask you to fax or send it to them..

here is a link to someone else's post who tried to expedite theirs.

Call and ask to speak to a Tier 2 Customer service representative. Tier 1 people do not know anything about expedites.

I agree with lecourville. I requested an expedite by calling USCIS. I told them verbally the reason and they gave me about 7 options or categories for which the request would fall under. I believe I chose category "7" which was medical. The officer told me that either I would be approved without any additional evidence needed or they would send me an email requesting further proof of my claim.

About 5 days after my request, I received an email requesting evidence to support my request. I sent in the evidence which they requested be scanned and attached to the email. After about one week,I kept calling everyday and spoke to Tier 2 officer. After about 14 days, the officer told me that my request had been approved. I received a text and email the same day verifying the approval. So yea, I think you should request the expedite by calling them, not through letter, because when you call them they give you a type of confirmation control number. With a letter, you don't even know if they received the letter or not. Good luck.
