Appeal. It's free. Instructions should be on the denial letter.

From the limited info in your post, it doesn't sound like they didn't get your extra documents; it sounds like they denied it the first time, you asked them to re-open, they did, and then denied a second time.

Did you apply based on 3 years or 5?

What exactly were they asking for, and why?

From what I've gathered, they typically only go into details on tax filings and lease documents if you have had a 6 month+ absence from the country, or multiple lengthy absences.

This is when filing based on 5 year residence. Even though you haven't specified, it sounds like that might be the case.

If not, let us know what the circumstances around the case is/was. Good luck.

Calling is useless. Go for info pass, bring the tracking, and insist to speak to a supervisor. Most likely your case was never reopened.

I apply based on 3 year rule.

well as far as i understood... they denied in first place... after i spoke with info customer service.. they said that they will reopen. but that officer who handle my case maybe didn't want to .. or something... i don't no what happen...

because then i receive letter one more time right now that they did denied my case. It says that case was never reopen....

Try to do a walk-in to your field office and insist on talking to a supervisor, Just be strong and polite, tell them that your case was denied based on their mistake [ they didn't route your RFE response right]

No MOTION TO REOPEN will be filed on phone, you must have misunderstood phone representative, or they don't know what they are doing (they might open a service request but it was definitively not MOTION TO REOPEN.) Nothing you can do rather than sending it again.

Write a letter and include all evidence that you sent the requested document in time (tracking from courier) and mail it to:

USCIS Customer Service Directorate
Contact Center Enterprise Office
111 Massachusetts Avenue NW
Mailstop 2260
Washington, DC 20529

Make sure you send it trackable.
