Hi Everyone!


Thought I’d create a thread for 2017 ROC filers who have received RFE to maybe keep track of how long it took to receive a response after submitting your rfe, questions about what else to submit and just general support.


We filed on March 2017 for ROC, case was transferred to Nebraska on April 6th, received RFE on October 23rd, sent in response on November 22nd.

anypne on a similar boat? Any clue on processing time for rfe?

Can you please let us know what did  you initially submit and what the RFE is asking?

thank you

I initially submitted:

copies of DLs showing same address

health insurance for 2015 - 2017

2013, 2014 tax return (we had amended 2015 so that one wasn’t available)

auto insurance showing us both under the policy

Husband’s 401k showing me as beneficiary 

husbands life insurance policy showing me as beneficiary

photos of us with family 

Different membership cards with both of our names

some utility bills 


so we have been married since 2013 received green card in April 2015. The rfe asked for proof of joint residence (they didn’t list the DL copies and we don’t have a lease as we live in a property owned by my parents) asked for birth certificates of children (which we don’t have any) and proof of comingling of finances and liabilities.


Sent our RFE response last week, Nov 22nd. Included the following:


Exhibit A:

  • Copies of current driver’s licenses showing our joint residence 

  • Copy of a notarized affidavit in lieu of lease from My mom who owns the property we live in attesting that we’ve loved there since feb 2013

  • Copy of the warranty deed of the property showing mom as owner 

  • Copy of our State Farm condo policy addressed to both of us listed as insured under the policy

Exhibit B

  • Copy of husband’s current 401K showing me as 100% beneficiary

  • Copy of official HR letter from My work showing Husband a my 401K beneficiary

My worry with these evidence is that we don’t get physical copy so o had to print out the designations from our online dashboards. Is this still acceptable?
