Hey guys, I recently called USCIS military help line to expedite our case due to my husband's PCS. Got a mail requesting for supporting documents. Any input of what documents should I send in ? I have a copy of my husband's order(he got the order 3 months prior to our wedding, and is now PCS oversea) , would the order still be good? And what else should I send in? Thanks.

When I had our case expedited through our consulate in Frankfurt, I only had to provide them with the military orders. I also went ahead and provided them financial information on how it would cause a hardship being separated. I would call the military helpline again and ask what exact documents they need for an expedite.

*edit* I found this blog post that has some helpful information regarding a military expedite http://immigrationroad.com/blog/tips-on-expediting-uscis-processing-for-military-personnel/

Military orders should be fine. If you want to be super diligent, you can add a letter from his CO explaining his pending PCS.

I was injured overseas and I am part of the Wounded Warrior Project. I submitted all my surgeries and appointments, then with in 3 day my paper work was approved. So what i am saying the more the better. If he has any thing else besides orders will be good also, such as his MOS and request that he is ordered to go overseas.

Thank you so much guys. This is helpful information. I wonder if I could submit the documents while I am in the field office to get my fingerprints done? Cause the documents are required to be submitted to the same field office.

fingerprints usually done at an ASC office - is rare that is also the local office for USCIS adjudications. Unsure about it - what have you learned about your ASC address and USCIS local office address?

Hey friends, I'm in a very tough situation right now and really need help. I'm deploying in May of 2015 from Guam and my fiancée's K-1 visa is in the last stages of completion all she has left is interview and physical. She is also pregnant and due July. So I need to know if there was any way to have the US embassy in Manila where she is located at now hold my case until I get back from deployment and or extend the validation of the visa card itself when she receives it?. Because with my deployment time frame, we will need more time until I come back in November to bring her here in Guam to marry and file a lot of other paper work like her Military benefits stuff and other immigration paper work also. Thank you hope I get the help.
