Help! IO said my EAD (I765) expedite case is sensitive. What does it mean?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am nervous and would like to know what the USCIS IO (immigration officer/tier-2 rep) meant by saying my I765/EAD is a sensitive case and should write to an address on lower welded st in Vermont. Should I be worried? what does sensitive case mean? See timeline (all in 2015) for my AOS/GC/EAD story

Mid May - Got married to my darling husband who is a USC, while on F1-OPT
End of May - Went on Leave of Absence as OPT was expiring
June 1st - Filed for GC and EAD
Mid July - Requested for EAD expedite with tier-1 rep
July 29th - Sent evidence in response to RFE for expedite EAD request
July 30th - Called USCIS to follow but tier-1 rep refused to transfer to tier-2
July 31st - Called USCIS again and got to tier-2 rep, who hastily said they have to check for RFE evidence
August 3rd (Day 64 and today) - Called USCIS again today. Tier 2-rep said she cannot share whether they have received my evidence or share the status of my case because it is sensitive. She shared an address (above) that I can write to and hung up!
Does this mean my case has been put aside? Is this a regular response?

that's weird.

suggest you keep calling in, talking with an ISO/Tier2 once a day, writing down their answers. after 2 weeks has transpired, compare the answers, take the >50 percentile as the answer.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Use of word 'sensitive' just means (I think) that they cannot ascertain for sure if you are the persons in question, so don't want to give out info over the phone.

But these workers, just like all workers, can range from incompetent to highly competent.

I just recently went through a similar situation regarding getting new title to vehicle I had acquired via a trade with another private party.

I went to local office and they told me things which seemed totally wrong to me.

So I called the central office in our capital city. Two more persons told me ridiculous things. Finally, I got to a tier 2 person who gave the sensible answer, and luckily for me gave me his name and direct phone number.

I typed out what he had told me along with his name, title and phone number. Went back to local office, showed them the typed message, and they processed exactly as I had wanted in first place.

Not that this will help in your specific situation . . . but just showing example of the hoops we all have to jump through in life.
