Expedited AP questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I couldn't really find anything online about this, so now I will ask here. 


I'm considering filing for expedited advance parole as I need to go to my home country for a mandatory, final oral exam in mid-June 2019.

I'm here on a K1 visa and applied for AOS (AP + EAD included) in late-December 2018 so there is a chance I won't get the AP in time. 


Obviously, it is not as serious as a dying family member etc. but it is very much an emergency situation for me and would greatly delay my education if I won't physically be there, and therefore me getting a job here in the US will also be delayed (= financial loss). So I'd file it as either "emergency situation" or "financial loss". I'm worried it won't be enough reason to get it though. 😥


Has anyone applied for it due to a reason like this? And is it all through the phone? 


Also, I was wondering if you have to pay any fee to have the AP expedited or if it's free since I have already applied? 


Thank you in advance.

Doubtful that will be an accepted reason, but you probably could get AP by April-May. Always possible. Doesn't hurt to try and ask for it though.


I'm in Hillerod right now by the way for work(work for a Danish company) for 5th time. Amazing place here and always enjoy it.

Didn't you ask this question already last week. Anyway, you can always try. There is nothing to lose by trying. Whether they grant it or not is up to them. 


To me though, you'd have a better chance of convincing the school to delay your oral exam than convincing USCIS to expedite your case for you to take an exam. 


I'd would file under emergency, not financial loss. Financial loss to me is to speculative. Unless you can provide them with concrete evidence, such as there is a company already offered you a job contingent upon you successfully complete your degree in May and they offer you this much $/month, therefore, your financial lost would this much $$$ because you can't work for 3 months or whatever.

USCIS says: "You may submit an expedite request by contacting the USCIS Contact Center at 800-375-5283, or by submitting a written request and supporting documentation with your application."
