Replying to REF - A timing question

I've looked around and can't find this info so I'm hoping someone on VJ will know the answers or point me in the right direction.

When you receive your RFE how much time to you have to provide the information?

The reason I'm asking is that I may be with my fiance in Japan (him working - me visiting while we wait for our RFE or NOA2) when the request gets sent to his home in the US - which will then have to be either forwarded to us in Japan or if I'm back in Canada forwarded to me here. I have pretty much gathered everything I expect they will ask for so we're prepared... I just want to be sure that any of the requests don't expire and the process has to be started all over again... that would be just awful!

Thank you. :luv:

When they send an RFE, they give you 30 days from the date of the written notice in order to fulfill the requirments. Add in the days it will either take to receive it (it took me 5 days to receive mail from the CSC), and then to have it even forwarded...and you have even less time...


I-751 Removal of Conditions sent - 9/7/13

NOA1 received - 9/17/13

Biometrics appointment - 10/8/13

Removal of Conditions approved - 12/16/13

The time you are given to respond depends on the adjudicating officer in charge of your file...so it's hard to say. Whatever deadline they will set is strictly enforced, and you cannot request an extension on an RFE. As a rule of thumb, you must respond to the RFE sooner than later because all processing on your petition stops until they receive the evidence they are requesting from the petitioner.
