Got an RFE

Hello All

After seeing a touch today, then receiving a Text Message saying my case was updated, I could hardly wait to get to an internet connection to login to my USCIS Account. I'm in Colombia this week and was hoping to end my trip with good news.. I was so excited expecting an approval and hoping to celebrate the good news with my fiancee this weekend.. NO SUCH LUCK! I logged in and found I have an RFE..

I am leaving sunday, so doesn't appear to be a celebration in the plans..

After seeing this RFE, I was completely distracted the rest of the day wonder what in the world it could be...

I have a complete copy of my submittal with me, but I wasn't home all day. So I tried to keep a good spirit as to not spoil the day with my fiancee, but, man that wasn't easy. I kept thinking what could it be.. I sent in everything I could possibly think of that was needed.. Photos, G325's, I129F, Evidence of meeting in past 2 years was plentiful, including boarding passes, passport stamps for both myself and my fiancee who came to see me when I was working in the south carribean. Birth Certificate, Report of Birth Abroad, just could not imagine what it could be...

I arrived back at our apartment late this evening and reveiwed the paperwork and noticed on the I-129-F in Part C, Question 1 related to military service, I had put "Not Applicable-No Military Service".. The part that I beleive may be the reason for the RFE is on Items 2 & 3 related past criminal offences. I left these blank thinking they were related to Item 1.. Thinking back now, that was plain stupid of me..

I hope that is all it is.. I realize I need to wait for the Actual RFE to arrive in the Mail, but just can't help but to be distracted..

Any thoughts from anyone?

If we find that the issue is in fact that I failed to answer those 2 items, Will I need to re-submit the entire package or just send the corrected I-129-F?

Any idea, on how this will delay my approval?

My internet access here is somewhat limited, but please share your thoughts and I will try to read and reply as soon as I can...

You are right that you will need to wait to see the text of the RFE.

It is possible your omission to answer Question 2, Part C is the potential problem. There was a posting a couple a months back from a woman that did receive an RFE for not answering question 2 of Part C.

If you answer No, you can leave question 3 blank. If you answer Yes, you need to fill out if any of the statements in Question 3 apply.

If this is the cause, simply fill out a new I-129F with the Questions answered and return only that document. Send only the document they are concerned with. DO NOT refile the entire package.

They say that they try to put you back in line with only the slight delay for the RFE. Turn those documents back around to them quickly.

Good luck.

We had an RFE for that exactly.They send you the I-797 piece of paper and there is a space you can just put down on the answer and send it back.You don't need to resend the whole package or even the form.Still its such a pain.knowing its your own fault :) You'll be fine,we're still waiting ourselves.Good luck!

Just correct it and send it back as quickly as you can. You cannot leave anything blank on any of the forms. I know it seems like a minor thing but these things delay your case.

Simply putting "No" or "None" or N/A is important. To those reviewing the forms "blanks" raises question marks, so always put something.

RFE's that are this minor shouldn't delay your case too much, you may return the forms next week and get approved in the next 2 weeks or so. They may just be waiting for you to correct this.

Yes, for Example if they ask Name of Spouse, in first box put None. In the following boxes listing date of marriage, address of spouse, etc... leave those boxes empty.
