I am USC. I submitted I-130 petition for my wife in March. It has been under active review since June.  She lives in Iran. 

Would it be worth submitting an expedite request for our case given the current civil unrest, protests, violence/brutality from police, and nation-wide Internet blackout?

Do I have anything to lose if it is denied? I dont want to further delay our case. 
 

Thank You

Nothing to lose, but most unlikely to succeed.

No harm in trying.  Even if the expedite request is denied, it will not negatively impact the case.  That said, set your expectations low that the expedite will be approved.  The expedite criteria generally apply to hardship to the US citizen, not to the foreign beneficiary.  If you are going to request due to humanitarian reasons on the basis of danger to the beneficiary, you will likely be asked for proof that your beneficiary is in more danger than all the other beneficiaries from Iran also awaiting petition approval.

Expedites are usually because of issues the USC has

there is civil unrest,  famine,  volanoes,  flooding and war in so many countries 

 

The data, covering seven years, shows that the last quarter saw more countries witness an increase in risks from civil unrest than at any time since the Index was released. Out of 198 countries, 101 saw an increase in risk, compared with only 42 where the risk decreased.Sep 1, 2022

Bump,

 

Because I am also going through the same thing and would like to know. It sucks because my fiance is also an avid atheist living in Iran and does not like to be under such an Islamic regime

Your bump is not going to change any of the previous answers.  I'll add that all expedite requests are "valid".  They are still requests, so their validity has little to do with whether they will be approved.  US Immigration officials don't really consider wants and likes in this context.  NOBODY likes separation.  NOBODY wants to WAIT.  If wants and likes were considered everybody would be expedited, resulting in NOBODY being expedited.
