Processing times after RFE submittal

Once they have issued an RFE, that means they are actively working on your case....congrats!  Now, to answer your question, you should see action on your case within two weeks.  For us, it was one week, but I see various people state that they see results from one-two weeks.  Good luck!

I received my NOA2 in the mail yesterday and the USCIS website has not been udpated. It still says RFE Rec'd. 

That's interesting. When did you send in your original application? They notified me yesterday that they received my RFE documents and were resuming with the processing of my case, so I'm curious what to expect next. Thanks! And congrats on your approval

Thank you! Good luck to you! It's an painful waiting process. Hopefully now ours is out of USCIS's hands, it will move a little faster.

USCIS received our REF documents on April 21. Almost a month ago. We continue to wait. Patience is running out. But they can review the documents within 60 days .... sad///

 

It's tough--I'm in the same situation. Hang in there!

we just got RFE today 😢 we are january filers 2017 

I also filed in January. I received the RFE on 5/12 and overnighted the documents back to USCIS, so I'm hoping it will move along relatively quickly from here. You don't really know what to expect though.
