Received RFE

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I got an RFE when I looked at my Case Status online today, stating that they're requesting initial evidence. What's the difference between initial and additional evidence? We sent coloured photos with the original packet, so a little confused.

Good news is they touched our case!

Initial evidence is evidence that should have been in the initial filing packet. Could be anything. You'll know when you receive the mail.

Yes i was excited even when i got my RFE...thank goodness for a touch right?? Since you cant know what they are wanting till you receive the Hardcopy of the RFE, just be patient for that day..i know its hard but it will be there in a few days...the RFE will spell everything out clearly of what you are needing to send back. My RFE was for passport photos i forgot and i didnt answer one question. Get that back ASAP because your wait doesnt start till they update your file. We waited a month for our RFE to turn into a NOA2. It's exciting and nerve racking!! GOod luck and Look forward to seeing your happy status that you got your NOA2!

It was just asking for evidence we'd met in the past two years (our photos that we sent in weren't date-stamped) and his passport photo was the wrong size. Yay! Simple and straight-forward!

Most people's photos are not date-stamped, and captioned with the date, where they were taken, and who is in them. Photos are secondary evidence of meeting. You mentioned in your first post that you sent photos, but what else? The strongest evidence of meeting is passport stamps, plane ticket/boarding passes, receipts in your names showing you in the same place at the same time. Then, the photos together can back up that evidence.

Correct. The RFE will explain EXACTLY what is considered as PRIMARY evidence of meeting. Let the readers take NOTICE that photos together are SECONDARY evidence of meeting. PRIMARY evidence is needed for petition approval.
