Boston, MA asked in Immigration Law for Massachusetts

Q: Hi, my husband case got approved from the Visa Center I'm just waiting for his interview at the US Embassy in Haiti.

The Embassy is now closed, I'm having surgery on my right arm and I don't have anyone to care for me after my surgery. I have three kids but they're too young to care for me. I wanted to ask is there anyway I can write a letter to the U.S. Embassy in Haiti with my doctor's note will they grant my husband a visa to come when I'm having my surgery? Will they consider my surgery as an emergency because it is. Can' barely do anything with my right arm, over the weekend I was having a hard time reversing the car because I had to put my right arm on the driver seat it hurt so much. I'm meeting with my surgeon this Friday coming up I was going to have her write me a letter to send to the U.S. Embassy in Haiti but not sure if it might work or not, that's why I wanted to get an opinion. I went on the Embassy website to see if surgery would consider an emergency it wasn't up there. They have death, and also it says medical I think but what kind of medical? Please let me know what should I do?

A: You or your lawyer can write an expedite request to the NVC to see if they can schedule an appointment based on your medical need.
