Requesting expedited processing can alleviate some of these pressures by speeding up the adjudication process.

In this article, we will provide a comprehensive guide on how to expedite USCIS cases.

What Is an Expedite Request?

An expedite request is a formal appeal to accelerate the processing of an application, petition, request, appeal, or motion under the jurisdiction of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Immigration benefit requestors or their authorized representatives may submit such requests, which are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Supporting documentation is essential to substantiate the need for expedited adjudication, ensuring that each request is thoroughly justified and meets the criteria set forth by USCIS.

To qualify for USCIS expedite requests, the requestor must demonstrate that they meet one or more of the USCIS criteria for expedited processing. USCIS considers the following factors when evaluating an expedite request:

  • Severe financial loss to the requestor or their company
  • Urgent humanitarian reasons
  • Compelling U.S. government interests
  • Clear USCIS error
  • Delay caused by USCIS that would cause significant harm to the requestor

It is important to note that the USCIS considers expedite requests on a case-by-case basis and that meeting one or more of the above expedite criteria does not guarantee that the request will be granted.

Common reasons people request expedited processing include severe financial loss due to a pending job offer, medical emergencies, or urgent travel plans. To request an expedite, the requestor must have a filing receipt notice, review the current case processing times to determine the need for an expedite, and check their case status online.

What to Do If Your Expedite Request Is Denied

If your request for expedited processing is denied, it can be frustrating and disappointing, but all is not lost. There are still options available to you. First, you need to carefully review the denial notice to understand why your request was denied. Then, if you believe you have new evidence to support your request, you can consider reapplying for expedited processing.

If you do decide to reapply, be sure to address the reasons for the denial in your new request and provide any additional evidence that may strengthen your case. It is important to note that USCIS may deny your request again if they find that the new evidence does not meet their criteria for expedited processing.

Another option is to file an appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) if you believe that USCIS made an error in denying your expedite request. However, it is important to note that the AAO only reviews expedite request denials that are based on a USCIS error. If your denial was based on a lack of evidence or failure to meet the criteria for expedited processing, the AAO will not review your case.

Finally, if your expedite request was denied due to severe financial loss, you may be able to file a request for reconsideration. This request must be filed within 30 days of the denial notice and include new evidence not previously available or considered by USCIS.

Overall, it is essential to carefully review the reasons for your expedite request denial and consider all available options before taking any further action.
