RFE question

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have more primary evidence of our relationship because I visited Clara last month again, should I include that in our RFE (which only requests my Belgian Birth Certificate). ?

Secondly, because it takes like a week for post to arrive overseas, would high quality color copies be fine, with a statement its truthful ? How about the letter for the translation? The signature of the translator would be a copy. Is that a problem?

1. In the case of an RFE I would not include any infornation they do not request. An RFE presumes they have already finished processing of your petition and have requested only infomation that was lacking or insufficient.

2. If I understnad the insructions correctly, they say that you should not send original documents but should have the original documents available upon request. I did not send any original documents.

How about the letter for the translation? The signature of the translator would be a copy. Is that a problem?

Submission of Supporting Documents - Original vs. Photocopy - If a supporting document is prepared by the issuing authority solely for the purpose of presentation to USCIS, an applicant or petitioner must submit the original document with the application or petition. Examples of supporting documents which must be presented in the original are:

Form I-20 issued by a Designated School Official to a foreign student

Form DS-2019 issued by a Program Officer to an Exchange Visitor

Labor Certification issued by the Department of Labor

Labor Condition Agreement with the Department of Labor endorsement

Form I-693 Medical Examination issued by a authorized civil surgeon

Vaccination Sign-off Supplement to Medical Examination Certificate

Attestations, formal consultations and advisory opinions (e.g., a letter from a recognized expert attesting to someone’s extraordinary professional skills)

Affidavits prepared in place of unavailable documents (e.g., an affidavit in place of a birth certificate where the official records were destroyed by fire)

Translations of documents (even when the rules allow submission of a photocopy of the document itself.)

I just responded to the RFE and I had to answer Yes that I had met my girl through an "international marriage broker". Long story but I don't agree with that term! Anyway, I had to answer yes and it allows for an additional sheet of paper to explain so I added a one page letter explaining again how we met (I had included this in the original submission) and I had just returned from my third visit so I threw in one ink jet printed photo of us on that last trip with a date and a photo copy of the plane ticket. I don't know if that will help or not, but I don't see how it could hurt either. I don't see how they could deny a case because of TOO MUCH evidence? Then again, we are subject to a broken down system and the whims of the case workers at the CSC.

All you can do is hope and pray.


Adam & Yesenia

I-129 submitted on 5/26/06 (on OLD forms because the new ones weren't out!!)

NOA #1 with receipt number dated 6/12/2006

Nothing else has happened after that as far as I know... No RFE's, Nothing?

touched on 9/7/2006

Email notice on 9/11/2006 that my question would be answered.

Email notice on 9/12/2006 that the RFE is in the mail 3 months after my WAC number

Next trip to see her for a week on 9/23/06...

Went to Colombia on 9/23 returned on 10/1

I never received my RFE but my attorney sent me his copy which I filled out and overnighted on 10/3 RFE delivery confirmation on 10/4 but nothing from CSC yet...

CSC Email saying they have my RFE on 10/11/06, a full week after they got it.

Note that to this day, I've still NEVER received my copy of the RFE they said they mailed to me! I've seen lots of posts about lost RFE's and other documents from the CSC! This concerns me greatly!

NOA 2 on 10/18/2006 Woo Hoo! 129 days from NOA 1.

Yesenia arrived in the US on January 18th, 2007

We were married on 3/17/07

Filed for Green Card and Employment Authorization right away.

Green Card was issued (with EAD card) on 6/15/07

We'll be filing for AOS pretty soon.

1. Just send what they are asking for. If they felt like you needed to provide more proof regarding the other issues, they would have asked for it. :)

Also, sidenote, yet another asking for the foreign fiance(e)'s BC. *shakes head*

Here's crossing my fingers I don't get this RFE.
