Not for that reason.

my girlfriend and I are in the process of k1 (fiance visa) have eight months and has not yet reached us approval (texa), she became pregnant and needs me to be with her, there will be some way to speed it up?

Don't think it matters one way or another. The process takes as long as it takes no matter what your situation :(

She became pregnant??? Did you help???

If so, My suggestion would be to come up with a Plan or two


Plan A - What happens if Immigration is approved before the baby is born, how will you support the 2 of them while she is unable to work in the states.


Plan B - What happens if Immigration is NOT approved before the baby comes and how you will support them while she is unable to work in her home country.

I checked your VJ timeline for more information, but you haven't created one yet, so it's difficult to know where you are in the process. Please complete your VJ timeline, as it helps everyone including you. :time:

That said, I can offer some general help without the timeline. As others have stated, your fiance being pregnant will have no bearing whatsoever on your K1 petition process. I have personal experience with this, very much so, because my fiance was pregnant at the time I filed. I was also in the TSC (221 days or 7 months, 1 week and 2 days of waiting) and despite my best efforts (congressional reps, direct pleas, phone calls, etc ad nauseum) the pregnancy factor was excluded from consideration in all aspects during the journey to approval. Fortunately for you, you already have 8 months in the TSC prior to your fiance becoming pregnant. That's a good thing because in all likelihood you will be able to complete the process prior to her giving birth. And having said all of that, if you haven't reached out to any of your congressional reps and if you are indeed 8 months into your wait at the TSC (are you a September or October filer? I can't tell because you didn't create a timeline) then you should try to get some movement to happen in your case simply and strictly based on the amount of time you've been waiting. I mean, has the "normal processing times" window passed you by yet?

If all else fails, you can do a CRBA in the DR at the embassy. We were forced to go that route because of the excessive delays in the TSC. It wasn't too bad really. Just a lot of preparation, extra expense (application fees) and another interview. If possible you'd wanna be present for the CRBA interview (though not technically required). The question then becomes when your fiance would feel comfortable traveling after the birth. The general rule of thumb is 3 months is pretty much ok to do the travel thing, though many folk travel earlier than that with their new kiddo. That will depend on y'all completely. Fortunately the flight from the DR should be relatively short and if you don't have any connecting flights then that would be even better.

Anyway hope that helps. Good luck with it!
