Emergency traveling

Recommended Posts

Good morning, 

 

My husband and I applied for Adjustment of status and we are all set just waiting for the interview. It's been around 4 months since we applied and his dad has had 3 heart attacks in the past 2 months. Is there any way to get our case expedited or at least the AP? He wants to go visit his dad and we just feel so helpless.

I'm sorry to hear about his dad. See the USCIS website for info about expediting https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume1-PartA-Chapter12.html. He could also make an Infopass appointment to get an emergency AP, but that's only for a one time visit. Since it's already been 4 months, he could get his AP soon, but you never know with USCIS. If his expedite request is honored and he can wait another 6 weeks I would advice you to do that. (It generally takes 6 weeks for a case to expedite, but every case is different)

 

C. Making an Expedite Request

 

To make a request to expedite the processing of a domestically filed application or petition, the customer should contact the USCIS Contact Center at 1-800-375-5283. The USCIS Contact Center forwards the Service Request to the office with jurisdiction over the application or petition.

 

Customers may also visit a local office by scheduling an InfoPass appointment or writing a letter to the field office or service center. Applicants or petitioners outside the United States should submit their requests directly to the USCIS office with jurisdiction over their applications or petitions. For contact information for USCIS offices outside the United States, see the USCIS website.

 

Approval of such requests is discretionary and USCIS reserves the right to request documentation supporting the request to expedite an application or petition.

you can try and make an info pass appointment with proof from his doctors, to get an expedited AP.

 

I would not recommend leaving before he has that, I know its hard and if he does leave with out AP/EAD, or greencard, he will not be able to come back and you will need to start the CR1 process to get him back to USA.
