USCIS is aware that, in certain very limited circumstances, there may be compelling reasons an individual would want to expedite the fingerprinting process. One reason may be that a NACARA applicant has a child in the United States who is approaching his or her 21st birthday, and that child is eligible to apply for NACARA 203 relief only as a qualified family member.  If USCIS has not scheduled you for fingerprinting and you have a child in the United States who will turn 21 years old within the next year, and the child did not enter the United States before October 1, 1990, you should submit a request to be scheduled for fingerprints.  You may submit your request in writing or go to the Asylum Office listed on the I-881 receipt notice.  You should explain in your request that your child will be turning 21 years old within the next year.
