Urgent Humanitarian Reasons To Expedite Your Application In The United States


There are a lot of ways that the USCIS is strict. When it comes to documentation and handling of immigration, the USCIS is very strict and will not let just about anybody enter the United States. 

Of course, being strict also includes the timelines and the requirements that are provided for in law. But, in certain situations, the USCIS also has a specific set of criteria that they follow to have a little compassion for the people who may need a little bit of slack here and there.

Here at Haque Legal, our accident lawyers in Southfield want to help you out as much as we can. Let us provide you with some information on how you can request the USCIS to expedite your citizenship application in the United States.

Urgent Humanitarian Reasons

Humanitarian reasons are considered as related to human welfare. The USCIS always considers humanitarian reasons as a way to expedite the application for citizenship and the benefits that come with it. 

The following are some examples that have often been used by individuals when applying for an expedited request:


When you have an illness or when the applicant has an illness, it is considered as an urgent humanitarian reason for you to get an expedited request. For our clients who use this as a reason for the expedited request, we always recommend that you get examined by a United States physician in a facility in the United States. 

Not every illness can get you an expedited request. For example, when the illness is something that can cause problems to public health and public safety, you may not get approval for an expedited request and you may even not get any chance to see a VISA approval or a citizenship benefit approval.

When using this criterion, we recommend that you use the free initial consultation that we offer so we can help you. We will see to it that we discuss the matter with you properly and how you can use your illness to get approved for the expedited request.


When you are facing a disability, you may use this as a way for you to get an expedited request for the processing of your papers. Again, the expedited request approval is not a guarantee that your request will be approved. It is only approval of the request to get your papers checked before others who have applied as well.

Extreme living conditions

Are you experiencing living in extreme living conditions? You should check out the fact that you can always use this as a criterion for you to get approved for an expedited request for the processing of your documents.

Extreme living conditions that affect your physical and mental health must be properly documented and presented with evidence.

Death in the family

When there is a death in the family, it is a request that may be considered by the USCIS to expedite your request. It is a humanitarian reason because the USCIS is also mandated by law to establish the tenets of American life and that includes the life of a family being together. Death brings a family together and the USCIS will not stand in the way of that. 

In the worst possible case, you must inform the USCIS of the circumstances of the loss. If your request for the citizenship benefit cannot be approved, you can at least have an extension on your United States stay or a short stay VISA may be approved under special circumstances.

The critical need to travel to obtain medical treatment in a limited amount of time

When you have a critical need to travel to another country or to the United States to obtain medical treatment, it is considered as a humanitarian reason for your case to get expedited. Of course, this requires the submission of many documents and must be presented just in time.
