Has anyone else received an RFE recently? How long until you got the hard copy?

We found out we got an RFE on March 26 via text and email but haven't received anything by snail mail yet. It's ridiculous - I can't solve the problem until I know what it is and they won't tell me! I've been looking at past times that it took people to receive a hard copy (~1 week) but wanted to know if anyone has received one recently (maybe it takes longer now)? :(

from what ive seen on timelines it looks like anyone with a rfe can add about a month to the entire process, but thats just my observations, maybe you can go to uscis and request another copy of the RFE via erequest, we had to do it for another copy of our NOA2

good luck!

It took about a week after the online notification to receive the details on the RFE through snail mail. Once Nebraska receives our response to RFE, it took about a week for them to update our I-130 as approved.

Good luck!

I-129F Sent : 2015-02-27 I-129F NOA1 : 2015-03-04 I-129F RFE(s) : 2015-03-29 RFE Reply(s) : 2015-03-31 I-129F NOA2 : 2015-04-06

I received the RFE hard copy I believe 3-4 days after noticing it on the site that I was going to get and RFE. They received it on the 31rst of march and I had NOA2 just 6 days after they received my RFE. Goodluck on you journey! :)

I submitted an e-request yesterday, thank you for letting me know about that! When I called again today, they said that the e-request was assigned to an officer, so that sounds promising. I just hope that they can send out another hardcopy soon, because I'm thinking that this first one is lost… Two weeks tomorrow :(

Thank you to all the replies, although they seem to confirm that this could be some bad news for me!
