RFE

Can anyone help me understand what's going on with my AOS?

I filed AOS 20 Oct, 2010 and received a RFE on 5 November. I sent that RFE on 2 January 2011 (took a while to compile the documents I needed), and my online case status for my AOS says "Request for Evidence Response Review - On January 4, 2011, we received your response to our request for evidence.

I had my biometrics takes on 12 January 2011.

I have not received my EAD - it is now past the 3 month expectancy.

Also, when I look up the status of my AOS online it says -

"You should expect to receive a written decision or written update within 60 days of the date we received your response unless fingerprint processing or an interview are standard parts of case processing and have not yet been completed, in which case you can use the processing time information on our website to estimate when this case will be done"

I know it hasn't been 60 days yet, but can someone please explain to me what the last part of that sentence means?

Does it mean that I won't be receiving a response about the RFE?

Or will the response to the RFE be later than 60 days because I had my biometrics done?

And what's going on with EAD? Is that now delayed because of the RFE?

I'm just a little confused on what to expect from USCIS.

Thank you!

Is your case at CSC? or a local center?

You are not really past the 3 months for your EAD because the time between the notification of the RFE and the time they receive it does not count.


If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving is not for you.

Processing is paused on everything when you have an RFE. As someone else stated above, the RFE time isn't included in the wait time.

The notice you have is telling you that they're checking your response to make sure it's okay. If it's determined it's okay you'll get an update saying something like "Case processing resumed".

It's promising for your EAD that you finally did your biometrics because you wouldn't get the EAD without biometrics. Hopefully you'll get it in about a month but it could take up to the 3 months expectancy.

Ahh I see. I didn't realize that the process is paused during the RFE time. Makes sense now.

I don't mind waiting longer for the EAD now that I understand why it's taking longer.

Thank you so much.

Lol. Exact same thing happened to me :P I had a good ol' rant about it taking forever (wasn't really forever but it sure felt like it :P) and then bam, approved :P

Congrats! You should get it in around 2 weeks. You might get 2 more updates about it between now and then. :)
