I think I will then !!!! I guess  the worst they can do is say no.   I'll gather all information proving my request and when I get to that point  and hear back I'll post my reply from them.   Thanks so much i really needed to hear from someone that I wasn't completely crazy for going through the trouble of trying the requesr if it wasn't worth it  at all.  Again thanks guys !!

I do not see the basis for an expedite but agree there is no harm and you never know.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Is he in the US working legally?  This could be an issue at his interview if he is working without authorization.

I'm assuming he entered the US illegally and now needs to interview abroad (hence the need for an I-601A). The unauthorized work isn't an issue for a CR-1/IR-1 visa.

Yes exactly.   Uscis is well aware of this fact we had to turn in all financials and PROOF of his income for the i601A
