DENIED! USCIS never received RFE I-693 [merged threads]

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just when things couldn't get worse. After waiting over 2 years for my husband's adjustment of status, we finally received an RFE requesting he redo his biometrics.

This is after we did indeed submit his vaccines within the allowed 12 month period.

But ok, we had them redone and sent them as per their instructions to 26 Federal Plaza.

 

RFE deadline - 2/1

Documents confirmed via USPS tracking - 1/16 (2 weeks early)

 

Now I received a letter saying they never received our documents!

 

I am total lost. I don't know what to do at this point?? Luckily I have iPhone pictures of the actual sealed envelope with stamp and tracking number.

 

I've written my Senator and my lawyer is somehow going to get involved but is there something else I can do to fix this????

 

Thank You

Sorry the RFE requested him to redo his biometrics but you redid his medical instead? 

Can you post your RFE

To be clear, I resubmitted the I-693 form which is for the Medical Examination and Vaccine Record.

Biometrics and vaccines are something completely different, what did they actually ask in the RFE

I-693

You cannot get an RFE for a medical exam because a medical exam is not a required submission before the AOS interview (you can submit it at the interview).

You likely received a COURTESY LETTER merely reminding that at the AOS interview you will need to provide your medical exam results.

As a K1, all you would have to provide at the interview was your copy of the DS3025 Vaccination Record and the interviewing officer would retrieve your original K1 medical exam results that were collected at your POE and put into storage in your personal A-file FROM your A-file.

 

Post your :RFE" letter please. You likely did a whole lot of extra work for nothing.

I wish it were true and that I am wrong. But we had our interview in 2017. This isn't a courtesy letter. I'm attached a portion of the letter. We have been waiting for a decision since our interview and it wasn't until just now that we received a letter. But the issue I'm worried about is that we received another letter saying they haven't received our i-693 within the deadline. How could that be? I have a tracking number and even my mailman showed me that it was delivered too. I don't even know how to handle this.

Oh okay I see now. You did not mention that you have been interviewed already at all and only mentioned you had filed for AOS and your time line states from a K1.

As per your query then, have you called USCIS and asked? They may request you show them that you have evidence that when you tracked your RFE package to them, it was signed for and received. It would also show the date you complied by as it would state the date the package was received.

Have you tried that at least?

I'm besides myself. My husband received a letter of denial for failure to respond to the RFE. However, we sent everything 2 weeks early from the deadline of 2/1/2019.

 

Any advise on what I should do??

 

They are saying USCIS never received his I-693 on time and therefore we abandoned the case. I have a tracking number that both our post office gave me straight from their computer system.

They most certainly received the document but how on earth do I prove this???

 

I'm so upset because it's just unfair they made us wait 2 years and even after getting my Senator involved, no one has been able to help us.

 

I'm tempted to go to the offices and just park myself there until they allow me to see a living person who will help.

No i haven't. The developing news is the letter my lawyer claimed to have received is an actual denial letter. I will need to somehow prove that we indeed sent our paperwork on time if not early. I will call for now but going to visit the office and somehow insist that I see a person.

Make an Infopass appointment (you may need to call in to do so with some field offices now) and present evidence of submitting the RFE response.

Worst case a Motion to Reopen or Motion to Reconsider (MTR) can be provided.

Hold on to that tracking number. Also, I'm assuming you have evidence of completing the medical. Neither proves you submitted the I-693 on time, but it is pretty compelling evidence (who gets a medical done & submits a package to USCIS for no reason)?

Thank you, yes. I have a receipt that indicates the $500 expedited fees I paid for his medicals which was done literally across the street from their offices.

i'm on the phone now in hopes I can make an appointment.

OP, if you don't restrict yourself to this thread only, we'll have to take administrative action for spamming.

Thanks, and good luck.

Just curious, did you respond to the RFE yourself, or through your lawyer.

 

Another route in the case of USCIS misplacing documentation would be to talk to the Ombudsman.

 

Good Luck!
