RFE Reasons

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello: I am new to this forum. I hope someone can help me with my concerns. I recently submitted I-129F and noted N/A for several questions. Has anyone ever gotten an RFE for answering N/A versus "None". Also, there is an age gap between us of 15 years, has this also been a problem for some as far as being denied.

Any answers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance everyone!!! :wacko:

I don't have the copies of the forms we submitted in front of me, but I know I put a combination of both N/A and none for several answers. We didn't have any problems or RFE. So long as you have submitted the required evidence, you shouldn't have a problem. The government likes pictures, so hopefully you provided color pictures to them proving evidence of travel there to the Phils and also of you and your fiance together. This can establish pretty much the fact that you know one another. Proof of continuing relationship can be established by pictures, but it is better established with items such as receipts for engagement rings, etc. Check the guides on this site for more information. I don't think age difference matters so much. I've heard of 40-year age differences between couples, particularly American men with much younger Filipina women, so me and J are actually an exception to that since we're only 3 years apart and in our 20's. All you have to prove is you have a legitimate relationship, have met in person, and that you intend on marrying her. Hope this helps.

Always wondered that also. N/A or None. Main thing is not to leave blanks.

15 year age gap normally is no problem. Main thing is to have lots of evidence of a bonfide relationship. Doing more than one trip to see her is a BIG plus also.

Rich Filipinos here do pay older puti to bring their relatives in so you have to do one better than the scammers.

Make it you guys jobs to accumalate communication evidence until the interview.

Pictures are number one. I was denied first time for lack of such.

Phone records are next.

Even tho everything is Hi tech now. Snail mails still count also.

All depends on the CO and what they individually look at for proof.


K1 denied, K3/K4, CR-1/CR-2, AOS, ROC, Adoption, US citizenship and dual citizenship

You use N/A when the question is not applicable and "none" when the question is applicable but the answer is "none".

For instance if asked to list your children and you have none, you answer none, making their dates and places of birth N/A.

If you are an illigitmate child of an unknown father, you don't put "none" under father's name. Instead, you put "unknown" and then his date and place of birth become N/A.


Facts are cheap...knowing how to use them is precious...
Understanding the big picture is priceless. Anonymous

I think I put 'none' for everything as I got myself all twisted into knots thinking after someone wrote a post saying they'd had an RFE for writing N/A. In hindsight I think logic should have prevailed and a combination of NONE and N/A would have been better, but I don't think the adjudicators will be that fussy. If they are, then it may be someone having a bad day!

The centers seem to be taking more time to cash checks and issue NOA1's now so it's hard to say. If you can get your WAC/EAC # off the back of your cashed check you can start tracking your petition on the uscis website.

I believe you should be fine regarding the 15 year age gap, so long you have evidence of the bonefide relationship and meet the requirements for K-1 visa that should be all the consulate should be checking for. For the "None" and "N/A" answers I believe if you didn't anything blank and answered the questions you wouldn't get an RFE... they usually give RFE for things like signature and additional information in order approve you for the visa and sent to your foreign country.
