This is a bit embarrasing my fiancee and I were planning on getting married in June as we both have some loose ends we wanted to get taken care of before getting married. Well it seems that we had a very good celebration during the week of Valentines and it seems we are now expecting. My question is does USCIS take this into account when processing visas (like maybe make them go faster) as I would really like this child to be born in the USA. Any thoughts?

You wanted to get married in the States? If you file for a K1 visa ASAP, it seems like the average time from filing to getting the visa is slightly less than 7 months. So that could give you enough time. I don't think the USCIS takes pregnancy into account.

Congrats!

Expedited requests are mostly only for imminent military deployment or death (must be your own).


YMMV

USCIS only cares about the baby if it has been born, then you need to file a seperate K-4 application for the child, so get your application in NOW. If you don't think you will have the 7-8 months, get married and file a K-3 and K-4 visa.

The USCIS will only care about the pregnancy at AOS, as to the father. Really now, if they would expedite based on pregnancy can you imagine? If your fiancee was your wife and had some terrible complication that could not be handled in her homeland then maybe. But that is a longshot and dificult to prove. Children are born in third world countries all the time.

Make sure you are listed on the birth certificate and that the birth is registered with the appropiate embassy if it does occur overseas.

Congrats,

We are pregnant also. Congratulations!

We tried the expedited processing and were "denied". Pregnacy (even with complications) does not meet the guideline requirements for expedited processing. Just thought you'd like to know.

The pregnancy makes no difference in your process. Also, you do not have to file a K-4 for the baby because the baby will already be an American citizen due to one of the parents being an American citizen. You would have to go to the American embassy and obtain a SSN and a American passport for the baby to travel.

Thanks all for your warm wishes. Chadandchrissy Congratulations also!! Well it looks like we will just have to wait it out and see if things go quick enough so that the baby can be born here in the states. Now something I didn't know is that if one of your parents was a US citizen that even if you were not born in the US you are considered a citizen. Huh learn something new everyday.

Lena and I are both really excited and happy, timing kinda sucks but we're happy. Biggest thing is I won't be able to be in on all the cool stuff that goes on in those first few months :( As I can't get there again until nearly the end of June when we were going to get married. Since this is her second pregnancy she's already showing no morning sickness though :thumbs::dance:

Now if I can just get all this crazy paperwork figured out and which is really the best way to file Arrgh :blink::blink::wacko:
