Single Status Update
We have received today a form called Request for Evidence (RFE) from USCIS.
It seems to be a new additional requirement.
All they are asking for is additional evidence to process the petition I-130. In our case, they are asking for one US passport-style photo. The photo must conform to the US passport photo specifications. My spouse's US passport was done in Feb 2019 but USCIS now requests photo taken within 30 days which will be challenging due to the current wait to process petitions. Thought we'd share this info as many of you will likely get this exact same request.
They need a 2x2 US passport-style photo (not their actual passport photo). This can be obtained at various locations like Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, etc. Or you can do it yourself and print to a 4x6 and cut it out (if you want to save a few dollars and have no difficulty dealing with this stuff). This was required in the initial petition per the instructions and guide on this website.
While they almost certainly can't tell when it was taken, the instructions say 30 days so I always say follow that.
