anyone with I-864 RFEs later in process

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

i have been keeping track of other forumusers RFEs for I-864.

matching it with their respective timelines, this seems to usually occur fairly early in the process - ie before they go in for biometrics.

(I am not stating that these two things are directly connected, just looking at timing for lack of any other insight into USCIS blackbox).

anybody had I-864 RFEs considerably later/ after biometrics?

reason is i had expected an RFE for my I-864 for additional sponsor info (IRS tax stuff that arrived after i filed) but biometics occured and nothing yet...

thanks


21/2 - received NOA in mail for all 4 (130/485/765/131)

23/3 - biometrics scheduled -> did "early" walk-in on 21 March

06/4 - received email update, interview scheduled for 7th May

27/4 - received EAD

08/5 - email: approval one day after interview (7th May)

It has been little over a month since you have applied for AOS.

USCIS has 4 to 5 months to process your application.

My RFE for I-864 arrived before scheduled Bio appt.

Yours may arrive later or you may be requested to submit

the evidence at the time of the interview.

Good luck.

ok, thank, thats another datapoint prior biometrics.

makes sense that an RFE could occur at any time.

From what I observe there is no universal pattern of how

USCIS processes AOS petitions.

Note that only a small fraction of applicants post on forums

about their experiences with AOS. And even if we see several

posters pointing to certain patterns, there is no way of knowing

whether there is any statistical reliability to it.

Do not concern yourself with speculative matters, it's idle

in any event.

What matters is whether in totality you have established

eligibility for benefit sought. If yes, then you should expect

an RFE at some point to fulfill the requirement, provided

you didn't submit all that was required.

The worst case scenario is that you get denied without RFE

(IO is not obligated to issue RFE and can decide the petition

on the record only), but it is way too early for you to be concerned

since you submitted your petition in late Feb and not in October of

2011.

You could also try to mail the correspondence directly to the service

center from which you've got your I797 for I-485.

You may include the copy of your receipt , the cover letter explaining

that you are submitting the initial evidence that was missing at the time

of app submission as well as the copies of documents you have.

Please note: the above written is my individual "lay-man" opinion and is not

a legal advise. For legal advise consult an immigration attorney.

Good luck.

@ aosapplicant

thanks for your input. you are correct, speculation is a waste of time ;)

i submitted all required items but if they wanted a joint sponsor after all then i expected an RFE for additional info....
