Reasons why they sent RFE's

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hey guys... since ive been reading some doubts and worries here in the AOS forum about the TB skin testing new procedures... we are not sure yet if they do request RFE's coz of that... so i was thinking, for all of us new AOS filers... if you ever receieved any RFE's in the future (God forbid)... kindly please write down the reason why USCIS is requesting for RFE's so that we can avoid this from happening in the future...

i also welcome those peeps who have filed AOS in the past and have gotten RFE's to please write down the reasons why... hope this serves as a consolidated reference for reasons for rfe's....

thanks...

Good idea!

RFE #1 - my husband had filed a tax extension, so his 2006 taxes had not yet been filed when we sent in our application. We had submitted his "most recent tax return", 2005. The RFE was to submit form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File US Individual Tax Return. We got his tax accountant to send this to us. Evidence accepted by USCIS.

RFE #2 - this was a weird one. I entered the US in April 2006 with a passport that expired a couple months later. I didn't want to be travelling with an expired passport; so on the advice of Passport Canada, I applied for a new passport by mail, submitting the expiring one along with the application. There is an option on the passport application to have the old one returned or not...... I selected "Do NOT return old passport", since at that time I had no reason why I would need it later on. With my I-485 application, I sent in copies of the CURRENT passport, but USCIS wanted copies of the passport which I used to enter the country. Well, I didn't have it. I had to call Passport Canada, get them to send an official letter and a printout of my application which shows the "Do NOT return old passport" box checked. They had to verify that if an expired passport is NOT returned to the owner, it is destroyed. Evidence accepted by USCIS.

thanks... keep posting people... thank U...

Well I guess it's a good thing for everyone that only two VJer's got RFEs! :bonk: Congrats to the rest of you who did it right the first time! ;)

its a good thing, yes it is... but i hope most of the member will participate too... if only few had gotten RFE's before... we can actually eliminate getting RFE's in the future if all of us cooperates... :whistle::yes:

I got an RFE for my tax schedule and W-2s. I had sent in my full tax return but I had not sent in copies of W-2s or 1099 forms. I got word of the RFE last Thursday, received the letter today and mailed the stuff off today.

I hope this moves our case along!

Best of luck to everyone goin' through the process.

I just received an RFE saying my wife's I-693 was incomplete "Page 3, Part 2, Section 5 is blank or missing." I called the doctor's office today and they said "No it's not". I asked for a copy and they said they couldn't give it to me?????? Anyway, I'm going to get another copy and send it to CIS.

Any suggestions???

Thanks, Larry

my doctor gave me a copy of what they have sealed in the envelope for USCIS... maybe you can ask them again if they can give you a personal copy...if you really wanted to make sure, better go back to the doctor's office and ask again to be safe... hope this helps...
