Request for Initial Evidence ADVICE

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone! I just need someone to tell me that everything is alright with my husband and i's application. 

We just got a mail from the USCIS of a Request for Initial Evidence. What we're mad and frustrated about is that they're asking for A COPY OF MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE in which I do have a duplicate of what we sent to them and we did send them a copy of my birth certificate. We followed everything they asked from us. Are they doing this to make our application long or THEY'RE NOT JUST DOING THEIR JOB? I hope they're taught how to read (in which they should because they're supposed to be smart people working for the immigration). Also, I do not need to translate my birth certificate because it's already written in English. Ughhhh. I am just so frustrated right now because we did send them more evidences as we could. We would still send them ANOTHER copy of my birth certificate along my college transcripts tomorrow.

 

In line with this, does this affect the timeline of the process of my application? I am really bored staying at home and I do want to have my employment authorization already so that I can start working.

They need a photocopy of an actual "certified copy" of your birth certificate.  Front and back if there is anything on the back.  You may have sent something else, or they may have lost it.  Just send the correct document and you'll have a decision within a few weeks.

This.

 

Now I actually didn't sent any photocopy of the birth certificate, I sent the original and they sent it back.

Since the OP is worried about work authorization, it would appear this is not a visa case.  It's adjusting status.  Answer is the same as to the RFE though.  Typically, an RFE on the I-130 would have no impact on the EAD or Advance Parole.  They still take about six months.

I really did send a photocopy of an actual "certified copy" of my birth certificate. I triple checked it and my husband triple checked it before we sent. Like I said we have a duplicate of what the packet looks like so we know what we sent, but yes, we will still send the document and I'll include my college transcripts (school records with my birth date and parents name), just to be very sure. Thank you!

We had a similar issue. We received an RFIE for my USC husband's proof of citizenship when we already sent them a copy of his birth certificate. Our lawyers were confused as well.
We just resent the same copy, with a copy of his passport, and didn't have any problem.

sometimes forms and documents are misplaced, it's a pain, it's an inconvenience but better to respond with what they want in a timely manner than to argue ineptitude on their, in the end, you still have to provide it. Good luck!

School records won’t be accepted as proof of citizenship. Anyone can go to school citizen or not. You can send both a photocopy (front and back if there’s anything on the back) of your birth certificate AND your passport if you want, but it would be excessive IMO as only 1 proof of citizenship is required. Also if you submit photocopies of your passport you have to include every page 


Our CR1 Journey So Far:
 

USCIS Stage:

  • Feb 8 2019: Sent package
  • Feb 14 2019: Delivered
  • Feb 21 2019: NOA1 (PD Feb 14, 2019)
  • Assigned to Nebraska Service Center (yay... 🙄)
  • Waiting for: NOA2

The letter from USCIS specifically stated that I can send my school records listing with my parents' name and my date of birth. I believe the USCIS didn't need for to send a copy of every page in my passport. You gotta read and be careful what you tell to the people who needs help here in Visa Journey because your advice can cause more problems to their problem.
