There might be some instances when you would want to expedite your citizenship application. For one reason or another, there are now a lot of clients who are asking this question and we are here to help. 

Here at Haque Legal, we must expedite the citizenship application if the client wants us to do so. But, is the client eligible? What do we need to do to prove that our client is eligible for a citizenship application? Let us look at some facts through this article.

Am I eligible to expedite my citizenship application?

Yes, you are eligible to expedite your citizenship application if you fall under the circumstances allowed for in law. 

Generally, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will consider a lot of factors when they are trying to expedite your citizenship application.

What are the factors that the USCIS will consider to see if I am eligible?

There are three main considerations and a lot of many different factors that the USCIS will consider to see if you are eligible for the rushed application. 

The following are some facts about this:

The USCIS will consider your circumstances first

The decision of the USCIS is on a case-to-case basis based on the personal circumstances of the individual as well as the other factors that are personal to the individual making a request.

You need to present proper documentation for your request

You need to present the proper documentation for your request. Evidence that will support your need to get your request expedited is necessary. This differentiates your request from the rest. It depends primarily on why you are requesting and the grounds for your eligibility.

The decision of the USCIS depends solely on its determination of the facts of the case

The decision of the USCIS will depend solely on the determination of the facts of the case.

Is there a specific criteria?

Yes, there is a criterion for granting the expedite request. This means that you have to fall under any of the criteria set for you to be considered eligible for the grant of the request. In the next article, the criteria for eligibility will be discussed in detail.

Can I appeal a denial of my request?

Since the decision of the USCIS is often final and the appeal process may take some time to finish, we always recommend that our clients just pursue the original timeline if expediting the claim is not possible.

The answer to the question, however, is yes, you may appeal a denial of your request.

If the USCIS approved my request, does it mean that I am almost guaranteed citizenship?

No, the factors that are considered by the USCIS in determining your request are far different from the factors they use to determine if you are eligible for citizenship in the United States.
