RFE after waiting 6 1/2 months

Timeline

Today, I received a RFE from USCIS California. I really don't understand why we were not just

approved outright. I had visited my fiance 6 times in 8 months in Thailand. We submitted an

apartment lease with both of our names on it. I had spent more than 100 days with her in Thailand

prior to submitting our I-129F. I sent in many photos of trips we have taken to Phuket, Chiang mai

and Udon Thani. I sent in all copies of my airline boarding passes and copies of my passport stamps.

I just am very confused as to what more evidence I can provide to them. Has anyone else provided this

kind of evidence and then been asked for more evidence?

If they are RFEing you for more relationship evidence it seems like you forgot to send any evidence from between the visiting. Keeping in contact throughout the whole thing not just being in person together.

What exactly does the RFE request?

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

The RFE doesn't necessarily mean they want more proof of relationship. It could be any number of things..maybe you forgot to sign something, missed a line on the petition somewhere...it's possible it is something with a very easy fix.

Thats a good point, did the OP actually get the RFE hard copy or just an email?

It would help if you defined what the RFE said. The rest of this is just wild speculation. Inky may be right but we need to know what they asked for.

A lot of people still do.

You did not answer as to WHAT the RFE is.

I agree with the previous poster. You need to define what they are asking for. From what you described this is not relationship proof. It can be something else.

Regarding snail mail - people do. I did. I sent cards, flowers, gifts. I attached copies of that.

Mirroring what essentially everyone else has said - What (exactly) does the RFE notice say?

(If you're assuming what it is, based on an email or status update, then it'd be best to say that and simply wait for the actual request - otherwise you will/could make yourself crazy in the mean time. :star: )

My fiance is in Thailand and I send snail mail to her all the time. Only 97 cents for an airmail stamp and she always enjoys getting them.

First off, you did the right thing with primary evidence(passport stamps). I wouldn't suggest chatlogs at this stage at all. They prove ongoing relationship, NOT having met in person.

Secondly, do you have a copy of the entire petition? If so, go through it or perhaps have a family member go through it with you(if you don't know anyone who's been through this before). That's about the only things you can do until you have the RFE hardcopy. We had our hardcopy 5 days after the email but allow some time for it to arrive depending on where you live. USCIS can ask for everything considered important to meet the requirements - proof of you being a USC is one of them, another is ticking the right box or missing the passport pictures.
