My case is currently at the NVC. We already submitted documents, fees, applications, and three weeks later was asked for my W2's and are now waiting the full time for them to review them again...we are hoping that my husband can be here for the birth of our child on October 22nd but are not really sure what time line to expect from here on out. We tried to expedite but received a statement that the Dominican Embassy requires for all documents to be accepted before they will expedite. Does anyone have any information that would say that if we could expedite when all documents are accepted that we could possibly get an interview date in time for my husband to get here around the 22nd? What about if we didn't get an expedite? Is there any reason to get our hopes up?

Once the documents are accepted, ask for the expedite again. Nobody here can know what they will determine beforehand. In general, pregnancy is not a cause of expedite (See https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/671721-no-pregnancy-is-not-grounds-to-expedite-your-process/), but there is no harm is asking either.

What you got was a expedite with conditions, it means that when you case is completed you’ll skip the waiting time for appointment at nvc instead your case will be immediately sent to embassy.

A friend of mines was in a similar situation but at the US embassy in Ecuador. His wife was due to give birth in May and he sent in a doctors note along with an explanation of  the situation in the email. Stating that he was going to miss the birth of his first child and that he was running short on vacation days to stay with her after birth.  

 

They approved his expedite request and within a week she had her visa approval, and arrived in the US. It took about 24hrs for him to get a response from them. 

 

But yes, until all docs have been documentary qualified no expedite can be submitted; which sucks because some embassy allow expedite and review docs during the interview.
