Expedite request

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to call USCIS to expedite my spousal petition. Reasons: I have custody of a child with  autism. I’m having difculties between medical care, work and taking care of him. school-work times conflict are the worst  and expensive child care costs.   Co parent doesn’t assist financly or in any other way.  Grandma is the only help she also works and have been assisting for a very long time.  im very aware of all the options out there to assist with special needs children but I do not consider them to be effective and can cause more harm then the help. 

 

 

My spousal time line:

engaged end 2016

2018 K1 denied 

Married 8/2018 NOA1 10/22

3 visits to spouse country 60

days total face time. 

 

Please be creative with your comments :)

No harm trying.

I’d be more concerned with fixing the issue that caused the K-1 denial before rushing the CR-1 through. Faster isn’t always better. You want it done properly, right?

 

It costs nothing to request an expedite. Be prepared for the answer you didn’t want to hear.

Since the K1 denial there is more face time, family on both sides attended wedding, better communication on more then one platform and so on...

Of course but the K-1 was denied. There must have been a good reason and that reason needs to be fixed. I never said they were doing another K-1, but that they should do due diligence to make sure the CR-1 isn’t denied for the same reason again.
