Expedited Processing Approved In Difficult Marriage Case

Despite very difficult life circumstances, our Clients knew they needed good professional help to reunite them. 

In this incredible story, Clients were both living in foreign countries when they met. The circumstances involving their meeting were unusual.

They got married via a proxy wedding (i.e., virtually).  They eventually consummated the marriage, but then the U.S. citizen husband moved back to the U.S. due to a family emergency. 

When the U.S. citizen husband came to us in January 2021, the couple had already been separated for a couple of years.  We got to work immediately because they needed to be reunited. 

While working on the case, we discovered a past divorce decree from the Petitioner that was dated after the couple had married! 

Thus, Clients had to do a second proxy marriage.

Then the U.S. citizen husband became seriously ill and was hospitalized. At this point, we knew that we had to seek expedited processing based on humanitarian medical grounds. 

We filed the I-130 in June, and it was approved November 1st. The case was then created at the National Visa Center on November 4th.  

This case was very complex because of the couple’s unusual meetingdivorce historyproxy weddingsmedical conditions and other issues.
