Grounds for expedited spouse visa

Anyone knows in which cases can the spouse visa process be expedited? I know of one: due to financial circumstances of the USC. 

 

Actually, the grounds for sever financial issues with the USC can work against you. One of the main requirements for petitioning people is for the petitioner (US citizen) must show that they make enough to support the immigrant. There is minimal salary guidelines and affidavits of support the US must sign. As well as send in evidence of employment and previous years tax returns.

 

Also, there is no guarantee that the immigrant will be able to work immediately when they arrive in the US.

 

You can see how a claim of finance usually doesn't work.

Thank you Unlockable, this seems logical to me. I heard there is other ways to expedite- such as the spouse being in the military or humanitarian reasons. Do you know what are the details for this?

I believe if the USC spouse is terminally ill, it could be grounds for an expedite.

Yes, there are other ways. But they must be legit reason. Expedite shopping is not going to cut it. For example, if it is a medical emergency, documents from the hospital is required to be sent in as evidence of the expedite.

 

There is no expedite for a person being in the military. There is some form of expedite if that military person is being deployed. And, again, documents of that will need to be sent in.

Humanitarian reason is accepted, but yet again, documents or evidence must be sent in.

Tell us your actual reason you think an expedite is justified in your case.  We'll tell you the chances of it working.  We're not here to assist you in contriving something to cut the line.

Sounds like you're desperate to come up with an expedite reason......

This is a forum where people can post their questions they think are worth addressing, and you all as users can either ignore or help. But some chose to be bitter. This is not helping neither me nor you or anybody else who is browsing. 

 

Everyone who is waiting wants to shorten the time and get things done quicker, there is nothing wrong with that. I can't understand your passive aggressiveness. Unless you have gone through the long process and instead of giving someone a hand or point at the right direction, you chose to be doing this so that everyone else 'suffers' the same way.

No, I am not desperate, this is exactly why I will stop posting on this forum.

I've been through a few immigration processes, as has nearly everybody on this website. Some several times.

Searching for a reason for expedite will not be fruitful. Have a reason then determine if you believe it qualifies.

Nobody wants the process to go so slowly, but it is what it is. People are not posting because they want you to wait longer than necessary.

Don't say desperate.. wrong word!!

 

If people think they have a valid reason, why he or she should be desperate?

If he believes he had a valid reason, wouldn’t he just try expediting his case instead of asking for valid reasons to expedite?

We’ve all gone through the long process.

Here you go.  Have at it.  You’re a K1 right?     Better yet you’re the one who wants a K1 (and) an overseas honeymoon.  Post to expedite AP in 3....2....1...?  That won’t happen either.


You’re wasting your, and our, time here unless you want to know, understand, and follow the laws and rules.

Bitter?  LOL  

 

Every 3-5 days for 13 years someone drops by for advice on how to game, bypass, or shortcut.

 

They all sound alike.
