Does a request for initial evidence really reset the clock on processing time?

Recommended Posts

I just got a notification that my I-130 got a request for initial evidence. I have not yet received in the mail the letter saying specifically what was missing. 

 

I'm quite concerned because from what I'm reading online, a request for initial evidence resets the clock in terms of processing time. Whereas with a request for additional evidence, they just resume processing the request when they receive the RFE

 

Is this true about requests for initial evidence? I hate the thought that this adds another 5 months of time apart from my husband.

No, it doesn't.  No idea where you would get that idea.  "Reading online"?  5 months processing time?  Strange stuff.  Usually, you'll have a decision within a few weeks of receiving your response.

My attorney just said that in some cases an RFIE may reset the clock. 

The 5 months is how long it has been since my PD date until today when I received the status update. 

Only 5 months from submission to RFE is a fast moving case.  Congratulations.  It's possible to reset the clock because anything is possible. In practice, it doesn't.

Yes, I'd be ecstatic if it were an approval!

 

Anyways thanks for your response. There's a lot of noise online and hard to tell how likely a given outcome is. Appreciate the perspective, and I truly hope you're right.
