Hi All,

 

Apologies if this topic has been covered in recent times. My searches didn't come up with a specific answer.

 

We posted our application in Feb then later realised we needed to have included more information on something. We have since received an RFE with regards to a different subject. 

 

We are planning to provide the additional detail in an affidavit along with the RFE information.  Do people feel would this be an appropriate way of going about it?

 

Thanking you in advance

If they didn't RFE you for that topic, what makes you believe it is required?


YMMV

I would give them what they asked for regarding the RFE and nothing more.  I wouldn't give them anything which might confuse them. Anything else could be grounds for them generate additional RFEs.

Technically speaking, an RFE is a written request for more information and documentation that USCIS mails out if they believe that they don’t yet have enough evidence to approve or deny a given application. An RFE normally is a minor item and should not be looked at like it's a denial but an opportunity for you to complete your application. USCIS would not send out an RFE if they were going to deny your application. It's just a step that they must take and once they have your information and it meets their approval then you should be seeing your NOA2.


There are many varying degrees of RFE's. Some as simple as not "ticking" off a question. Others forgot the fiancé(e) letter and then others who met on a website and now need to prove that it wasn't a marriage arrangement website.


Once you get your RFE, read over very carefully as you only have one chance to reply accurately without causing undue harm. Once you know FROM THE RFE what it is set out to correct and to include "everything" they are asking for. Then reread the RFE to ensure you are compliant. Make copies of everything for your record and send back using their instructions which are contained within the RFE. If the RFE requires a signature, PLEASE don't forget this. Include the original RFE letter along with a cover letter explaining what you are including in your reply. Like a checklist format. Once received at USCIS your case will begin adjudication where the agent had left off. No one can tell you how long it will take so be patient.

Many thanks for such a detailed response. The RFE was linked to a divorce certificate I forgot to include but additional evidence was also required for something referenced in Section 3.

I did not get an RFE, but I did "add" something critical to my petition ~ 4 months after filing, which was a 28 year old divorce decree from England, which had not been submitted in full in our original petition.  

 

Amazingly, it worked.
