Hi Bulanglang,

Congratulations by the way, on getting your biometrics letter. Lol..I'm still waiting for mine, from the VSC, even though we filed for the I-751 at about the same timeframe a few days apart.....

As for RFEs, they are "Requests for Evidence", which can be for anything, and can happen at any part of the immigration process. As long as anything is "insufficient" and they want more evidence for it, you can get an RFE for it. So until you get your 10yr green card, I strongly suggest that you don't throw any originals of evidence paperwork out and keep all copies of correspondence from the USCIS, as you might need it for an RFE and/or for an interview at anytime of the process until your case is fully completed.

Hope this helps. Good luck on your immigration journey.

Even if you get an RFE while applying on a waiver - just submit what it asks for and a few affidavits. You should be fine. Good luck to you! :thumbs:
