Request for Initial Evidence I-485

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

How frustrating!Today I got a RFE letter from USCIS asking us to submit all supporting tax documentation (W-2s, 1099s, Form 2555, and all supporting tax schedules) for the most recent tax year.It also indicated that my sponsor's (wife) income did not meet 125% poverty guidelines!

To make it clear, at the time we filed our AOS application we didn't have Tax returns for this year (2016) due to her surgery for 2 monthes , so we sent Tax returns from last year (2015) - those forms showed that she only made 26000$ a year .   

USCIS gave 87 days to submit the evidence requested.

Can you please advice me on this situation? Any help would be appreciable...


Thank you!

 Just provide the asked for papers. Not meeting the poverty line criteria is just an automatic response when all other evidence of that claim is not provided.

Also don't forget to make a copy of the rfe for your records.
