    Exclamation Expeditious Review ????

    I've gotten an email from the head of DHS in TGG reading along the lines of ...

    ... I have reviewed case and determined it merits epeditioius handling - we're waiting to receive his immigration file and we should have it by middle of next week. I'll review the file and render a final decision...

    So, has anyone ever heard of a waiver meriting 'expeditious handling' then getting a denial?

    This is so super important to me - my nurse found a blood clot in my PICC line over the holidays so my IV meds have increased and I'm still waiting on a decision about drs removing my knee cap and I know I'll need surgery on my other knee which will take me out of commission for at least 6 months or more!!


    I would like to have posted this somewhere more general, but was afraid it would get moved!!

    Did you send an expedite request?

    I think they are looking to process your waiver faster than normal processing times, so that is good news (I think!). I don't know if they would deny your waiver, but they may deny it being processed as an expedite request after they look at it. That doesn't mean the waiver would be denied, just expeditious processing. I don't know though. Hopefully someone who has gone through an expedite request in Honduras can help you more specifically.

    Whatever happens, I hope your health conditions will improve soon and hopefully your spouse can home to help you.

    Hi Jeia, Glad you tried for the expedite! I think this will work out well for you I can't say for sure but this sounds like good news to me

    I'm thinking that they've decided to expedite the review and that now we're just waiting on the decision... that's what I got from the email anyway -

    My question is how likely would they be to deny the waiver even though they felt it was worth an expedited review... Just looking to see if this has happened to anyone else?

    Jeia, this is only based on lurking around these boards, I've never seen a case warrant expedited review and then end up being denied. But I don't know that for sure. Seems like if your hardships are strong enough to meet the expedite standard, they'd be strong enough for approval.

    Thanks kinda what I'm looking for - I've never known anyone to be expedited and wind up with a denial. I haven't seen it happen to my knowledge, I just wanted to post this up for the more experienced I2US travelers....

    Ok, so I hate to be a wet blanket.... but our case was expedited and then denied. BUT... we were expedited based on military obligations, not health problems. I would think that in your case, the need to expedite your case also increases your hardships, so it might be a good sign for you. Also ours wasn't out of Honduras, and each office operates differently. Good luck, I hope it's a positive decision!

    Good luck. Like so many I read post (especially from Honduras) but I don't often post. My thoughts are with you and I hope both your health improves and your husband is approved.

    Ok I did an expediated with my husband's waiver. But I turned mine in at the interview along with the waiver. I never received an email or any thing to say they were doing it as an expediated case but we got ours in 2 months. The expediated was never metioned when my husband recieved the phone call saying the waiver was approved. Best of luck.
    I-601 waiver submitted on Sept. 30 2009!!
    Husband approved in Honduras on Dec. 07, 2009!!
    I did not use a lawyer!!!!

    Jeia, Okay well I think our case had to be the fastest expedite I have seen so far, although we never got an email I was in constant communication with the Consulate Officer that interviewed us. We turned in our waiver on November 30th and we were approved on December 18th. My hubby was home on December 24th. When the CO told us they were waiting on the file it was because everything had been approved and unless there is something in the actual file that could make them change their minds you have it made. It took almost 2 weeks for them to get his file but after that only days to give it the final approval and call us to come and put the stamp on his visa.

    My husband just told me depending how long ago your husband got his police certificate (I think they are only good for 6 months) he may want to go ahead and get another copy because they made my husband go and get his before he could leave his passport to be stamped and picked up at 4 pm. The address and phone number are:

    Dirección General de Investigación Criminal (DGIC)
    Barrió Villa Adela
    5 Ave, 17 y 18 Calle
    Comayaguela, D.C., Honduras
    Telephone: 225-2410

    I really know that if they are requesting the file its because they are gonna approve you and I wish you all the luck in the world.
