RFE by Certain Time?

So, I've read on the forum a couple responses that state, "If you were to get an RFE for you're I-130 you would have gotten it by now." This makes me wonder, is there a time period where if you are going to get an RFE you'll get it then? Or is it, as I thought, you can get an RFE at any time before approval?

It would be as you as you think. The adjudication officer will review the documents during the process. If there is anything missing or incorrect an RFE is created. When this is finished the NOA 2 is sent.

As much as we would like to think there is a time period for rfes, there is not one. I know someone who received an rfe at around 7 months. The same rules apply for touches. I had one touch from NOA1 to NOA2 and it was a few days after they received our I-130. Some people have a few touches on their way to the NOA2 and some people have none, all we can do is wait.

It works like this--somebody checks your forms briefly to see if they are signed,are current forms, the money is included, the check is correct. If basic application things are not right, they either send it back or seend a request for initial evidence. If you got that part right, it sits in a box for months. You might get a "touch" if they move it to a different shelf but nobody is actually looking at it. When an adjudicator finally picks your file up, that's when he goes through it for details. It gets approved on the spot or an RFE if he needs more information before he can approve. That's a generalization because some unique cases get held for months and months beyond normal processing. But a normal case that gets an RFE toward the end most likely would have gotten approval that day had the adjudicator not found a problem when he was going over it with a fine-tooth comb.
