  1. Ok, thanks! I just learnt that I got a letter from immigration that was incorrectly delivered to the neighbor and returned (the address was correct). Since I already got a letter for the change of address I was just trying to figure out what it could be... Hopefully they will resend it in the coming days.
  2. Does anyone know if, after a change of address, they send just one confirmation letter or three (one for I485, I765 and I131)? I think someone mentioned it on this forum a while ago but I can't find it right now. Thanks!
  3. Ok, thanks. For what I read, it seems that EAD/AP processing time doesn't get as affected by and RFE than it can by a RFIE, at least in some cases. I got a RFIE a while ago, so we'll see.
  4. Congrats! Could you tell us, was it a RFE or a RFIE?
  5. I agree, I don't need this silliness either and I apologize to the forum for contributing to it. It's not worth it and certainly not helpful to anyone.
  6. False again, never said that. Never said that all cases are the same, either. Below all the sentences in which I used the word luck, or unlucky, for a full comprehension and understanding, since you insist on putting those words in my mouth. I will be responsible for what I actually say, not for what you understand. I wish you the best of luck with the rest of your journey, too! 😊 "Whatever you decide to send though, best of luck, because it seems that's what you need with these people…" (to Little_Vixen) "Considering this, yes, I'd say luck is an important factor too, even though it shouldn't be." "IT IS a matter of luck who's going to process your case, and depending on who does, that might have a huge impact on the outcome you get." "You took so long to get approved during the K1 process, with no RFE's or NOID's, and still you maintain luck has nothing to do with this whole immigration process?" "I was saying quite the opposite, that a case with no apparent reason for it to take so long to be processed as you pointed out yours was, had to had real bad luck considering that most others, even with RFE's, took significantly less time." "If there are people who can get unlucky, even if only on the time their cases take to be processed, there necessarily have to be others with better luck. Which again supports the idea of luck playing an important role in this whole process." "I NEVER said you had "luck" on your side for not receiving a RFE." "You have all the right in the world to feel you didn't have good/bad luck then or now, as I'm entitled to believe luck is an important part of the process"
  7. You keep linking my words to your personal case when I'm clearly talking in general. I NEVER said you had "luck" on your side for not receiving a RFE. I'm not interested in talking about just one particular case, but a majority, especially the majority who happened to get this particular RFE. You have all the right in the world to feel you didn't have good/bad luck then or now, as I'm entitled to believe luck is an important part of the process, in general, for a majority, without necessarily including you. If you're not going to keep going back and forth about this, good, I'm glad to hear, but don't do so putting words in my mouth that I never said.
  8. I didn't take your case out of it, the whole point of doing a research is to see what the norm is, when getting this RFE, on the documentary proof people submitted. When I find that the vast majority who got that particular RFE sent the full return, and on the comments the vast majority of people having had their cases accepted advice them to use the IRS transcript over the full return, yes, I'm gonna conclude that using the IRS transcript is probably better. Your case got accepted with the tax return, good, and I'm sure there are many others, but that doesn't change the fact that most people getting this RFE sent the full return, hence it might me wiser to just send the transcript to avoid potential problems. While your particular case is part of the total, there's still gonna be a norm, independently of if it falls under it or not. I was saying quite the opposite, that a case with no apparent reason for it to take so long to be processed as you pointed out yours was, had to had real bad luck considering that most others, even with RFE's, took significantly less time. Hard to explain that in a utopic, well-oiled, efficient office that doesn't allow a case to get stuck on a adjudicator's desk. If there are people who can get unlucky, even if only on the time their cases take to be processed, there necessarily have to be others with better luck. Which again supports the idea of luck playing an important role in this whole process.
  9. I never said anything about the State Tax Return. You keep giving details about your own particular case, which is good for anyone who could be interested, but it's not the point here. You started contradicting my statement, saying they don't necessarily prefer the IRS Tax Transcript, and now you say "The IRS transcript however allows them to go through it faster because it comes from the IRS which makes it a verified document". Even if that was the only reason, it would be a reason good enough for them to prefer the transcript over the tax return. "Luck has nothing to do with any part of this whole immigration process"? Two adjudicators, the one who works the fastest in the office and the inexperienced just hired one who doesn't even now where his right hand is, prone to mess up more often and with a tendency to send more RFE's than he probably should. The first one processing cases at least at a doble rate than the second one. IT IS a matter of luck who's going to process your case, and depending on who does, that might have a huge impact on the outcome you get. You took so long to get approved during the K1 process, with no RFE's or NOID's, and still you maintain luck has nothing to do with this whole immigration process? You'll have to forgive me, but I fail to follow your logic.
  10. I didn't mean an incomplete tax return as in a faulty one, just not all the pages usually submitted to the IRS. I didn't mean that you slipped through the cracks as if you were a criminal, either. I also submitted the SAME EXACT documents with my I-864 that I did at the interview, which was accepted then but not now. If that's not adjudicator-dependent I don't know what is then. Besides, it won't be me now who uncovers USCIS randomness when processing cases and giving away RFE's. It's enough to do a little of research to find that people with similar cases sending the exact same documentation get different outcomes. Adjudicators aren't machines, just human beings with different experience and different ways to do their jobs, so provided that you really don't mess up anything, even then your paperwork could be acceptable for one adjudicator but not for another. Been seen before, nothing new under the sun. Considering this, yes, I'd say luck is an important factor too, even though it shouldn't be. When it comes to the IRS Tax Return Transcript, it makes sense to think that they prefer the summarized version, uniform format, with all the info they need of your taxes against the pile of paper people usually send, not knowledgeable enough to know the exact documents containing the info USCIS actually wants to see. Again, this shouldn't be reason enough for a RFE, as long as all the documents they need are in that pile of paper but, again, human beings with different experience, different ways to do their jobs and even different preferences. For me at least, it's not that difficult to picture this new employee that after ten straightforward cases with tax transcripts and another eight with tax returns with more or less consistent documentation, encounters a ninth with a stack of 60 pages, different order and format, and a boss demanding a minimum number of cases processed per day. Will the stressed out and not that experienced new employee spend 30 minutes looking through that pile of paper or just send a RFE and go for the next case? I just gave an opinion, based on my own research and also on the advice given in a specialized book on the matter. That being said, I will be the first one to say to anyone with this or any other RFE to do their own research and then decide the best approach for their own cases before following any particular opinion.
  11. I've seen too many cases here of people getting RFE's because of an incomplete (or even a complete) tax return to have reasons to believe they're not that fond of the full return. Also, on a legal book I got at the beginning of the process about fiancé and marriage visas, they literally advised IRS Tax Transcripts are preferred by USCIS. No one said they only accept these nor that they won't accept the full return. If you got your case accepted only submitting an incomplete tax return, you might have gotten an adjudicator who doesn't necessarily care about what form he gets as long as the gross income is on it, but that doesn't necessarily mean that's the norm.
  12. I was (and still am) as frustrated as you are. I also sent the exact same documents that I sent to the embassy (which they also accepted without any problem). In my case I won't risk it and will just send the IRS Tax Return Transcript. I won't give them the excuse to deny my case just because (according to them) I didn't send all they need once again. I sent the whole tax return and obviously that wasn't satisfactory for them. Whatever you decide to send though, best of luck, because it seems that's what you need with these people...
  13. Yeah it's annoying to be in this situation, it just shouldn't take this long. I think the interview is usually scheduled before the EAD comes, but I guess there are also cases in which they take longer to schedule it. I'm not completely sure though
  14. The EAD is currently taking 4-6 months. I'd be happy if I got it in 4 months...
  15. I got the same RFE... and we are not the only ones. After some research, there seems to be something in common… the damn full tax return (or according to them, an incomplete one). They clearly prefer the IRS transcript, if they get too stressed looking at that pile of paper, don't find or understand something, they just send the RFE. Did you also get that generic RFE stating that your spouse's income doesn't meet the 125%, even though it does?
