For Those June Filers Who Recently Got Their RFE

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I finally received mine in the mail and was wondering how many others got their's already?

And a question to those who received their IMBRA RFE's back when they were doing the mass mail outs - how many of you got approvals soon after it? Do you suppose they are still expediting any petitions that used the old form? When mailing it back, did you send it certified? Before I knew it would come with a return envelope, I was planning on sending it express mail, but now I'm thinking that might slow down the processing?

I'm keeping my finger's crossed that this means my petition is ready to be adjudicated and they only need the supplemental questionnaire to give me my NOA2. :star:

Steven,

First...RELAX!!! LOL I can just picture you sat there going all nutz. Ian and I never even got anything in the mail in regards to our RFE being sent back and recieved. We only got an email. We never even got an email saying that we were approved for the K-3. I only found out by checking the USCIS site which I gave up long before our approval to even look at or count on being right.

I believe in my heart that your approval will be coming soon. Not by the touches, but by the time it has been since you filed. Keep the faith and things will work out the way you want them hun.

We got an RFE in the mail too. California recieved our I-129F on June 30. (even though we sent it on the 19th to Nebraska). Was your RFE an IMBRA RFE? I swore we filled out the new form that included that info...

How long did it take to get there from when you got an email or checked online? We got a notice on Friday 15th and still have not received anything... My mail however is temporarily being forwarded to my mom's while I'm in England.

Anyone know also if the RFE will forward ok? It's not one of those things that won't forward is it?? Am slightly worried about that....(my mom's mail is a PO Box too)

I received mine on Tuesday Sept. 25th and mailed it out the same day via USPS next day. I still have not received anything saying they have processed it or received it. I used the envelope they provided and sealed it in that but then placed that envelope in the USPS overnight envelope. I also wrote my WAC number on the outside of the envelope.

No idea how long this will take.

I don't think it's a good idea to write your receipt number on the outside for anyone to see - just like your ss#.

The letter I received has a blue page on top, stapled to the questionaire. The blue page instructions state for me to send that page back and on top so I'm going to keep it stapled as such. The return envelope says on it, Att: RFE - I believe that is good enough info for them to process it. I'm going to go ahead and use that envelope but send it certified with a return receipt.

I got the email notice on Monday morning and it stated that a request for more info (RFE) was sent to me on the 16th. On the outside envelope, the post office stamp has it dated received on the 19th. However, I'm in Laguna Beach with is only minutes away from Laguna Niguel where the CSC's PO Box is located - if that makes any difference.

I'd recommend that when your mom sends it to you, she using international express delivery service (the USPS has it as well as FedEx), that way you'll get a tracking number and it still make a take a couple of days to get to you in England. I'd recommend you send it back to your mom the same way and then have her mail it here in the states as certified (I'm thinking so that the return envelope can be used).

BTW, in the letter, it states I have until Dec. 9, 2006 to return it, so you'll have plenty of time.

Good luck!

got mine too steven and i sent it back fed ex yesterday.

Awesome! So hopefully, you'll get your approval soon! :thumbs:

Just my observation but I recalled during the mass mailings of RFE's back in July, many people had done the same thing as you and it didn't seem to get there any faster (I'm sure it gets to their mail room, but as far as being sorted, perhaps those who do the initial sorting of the mail only sort out the original return envelopes for RFE). Anyhow, I'm heading over to the Post Office now to send mine certified so we'll see which way is the speediest. :star:

One quicke note: The blue page says to make a copy of it for future inquiries. :yes:
