RFE for I485 and other documents

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just received an email notice that I was being sent a letter with a Request for Initial Evidence for our I485. This is of course very disappointing. I don't know yet what the problem was with our application but my question is how long this whole process might hold up our 765 application? My husband is quite anxious to work and we assumed we would have the EAD by now.

I'd love to hear some advice from other people who got an RFE and how much it held up the process for our other documents.

thanks!

Yes they hold up all petitions that are related to the I-485, so yes, this will hold up the EAD petition.

RFE will tell you what was lacking. Did you include an I-693 Vaccination record?

Yes, I included I693 Vac record with signature from Civil Surgeon doctor. I know a lot of people have problems with the I864 which is a confusing document. Since I have a co-sponsor maybe the problem had to do with the supporting documentation.

Perhaps that is it, Joint sponsor needs to provide similar financial information as the primary sponsor, that is I-864 and (IRS return, and perhaps pay stubs, and employer letter) IRS return can be simple IRS transcript.

This is speculation you need to see what the RFE is asking for.

Sep 17, 2007 - Response to first RFE sent via attorney

Oct 12, 2007 - EAD approval

I understand how you might feel :( .We received a letter via email requesting RFE.

However I'm glad to know that our case was reviewed but just missing the doc's they ask for.

From what I gather from the letter make sure you (submit ALL the information requested at one time).It slows things up,

but it's all about getting GOOD) results at the end.

Keep ya chin up!
