Finally approved I-131

I submitted initial expedite request in Oct 2022 , got an expedite request received notice 2 weeks later, did not hear anything more for 4 months, no request for evidence , got fed up and talked to live agent on Emma in February 2023 asking what’s going on with my case. Agent said it’s pending adjudication by an officer, I told them it’s been 4 months, this is not expedited at all. I asked for a call back from a tier 2 agent. agent called me 2 days later, repeating the same thing (waiting to be adjudicated by an officer), I told them it’s taking too long and I need to travel abroad due to emergency. agent suggested I open another expedite request. I agreed and told to agent to open another expedite request on humanitarians grounds, sick family member. they opened a request, I received a notice 2 days later confirming the expedite request. Another day later I got an email saying that the request will be handled by NBC directly, and that they want evidence. A week later ( February 28) I faxed a cover letter and family members diagnosis report and letter from doctor. 6 days later, today, case was approved. my case was estimated to be approved in 11.5 months, based on uscis estimate for i-131 at nbc. I just about hit the 11.5 month mark since filling. I wonder if I got approved because of expedite request or because it was finally time based on my filing date. my advice is if u filed an expedite request and did not hear anything, file another one with an agent. be sure to give a cover letter explaining your situation when requested for evidence.
