Allotted Response Time for RFE

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone may be able to provide some insight into how long the petitioner for a K1 visa has to respond to an RFE, in the event one is issued, regarding your particular case? I'll start off with a little background on my current situation. I filed my K1 petition for my fiancee at the end of April. The petition was received by USCIS on April 28th, 2017, and the NOA1 date is May 2nd, 2017. The petition was transferred to the CSC as well. I still haven't heard anything back on NOA2 unfortunately, but it seems USCIS is reaching the end of April (VJ estimates the CSC is working on K1's with an NOA1 date of April 24th, 2017 at the time of this posting).


I am going to Japan to visit my fiancee in a two weeks, and I'll stay for two weeks. At this point, I'm starting to doubt that I will hear anything back on NOA2 before I go to Japan, but I think there is a possibility I could either receive NOA2 or get an RFE while I'm there (potentially during the beginning of the trip). In the event that I do receive an RFE, I'm concerned about not being able to respond to the RFE fast enough due to being with my fiancee in Japan at the time it's issued. I'm hoping my paperwork will be adequate to avoid an RFE altogether, but you can never be too sure that everything is exactly as the adjudicator wants it to be. If I get NOA2, I think I'm correct in saying that I should have more than enough time to complete the remaining documents (affidavit of support, etc.) that my fiancee needs to bring to her interview at the embassy.


I appreciate any input anyone may have on this matter.
