View Full Version : I-140 RFE on experience Letter.

10-05-2010, 04:09 PM
I got an RFE on I140 requesting the below,

1. Sumit evidence that the alien obtained the required <nn> months of experience in a related occupation before <date>. Evidence of experience must be in the form of letter(s) from current or former employer(s) giving the name, address, and title of the employer and a description of the experience of the alien, including specific dates of the employment and specific duties.

2. submit evidence that the alien possesses the specific skills or other requirements listed in Part H, item 14 of the ETA Form 9089.

I left my previous employer on an overseas assignment and they are asking me huge amount to get the relieving letter.

So, I got the expereinece letter on a plain paper by previous manager mentioning technologies worked, duration and his contact details(not notarized). But, I could do this.

My attorney is suggesting me to get the same information on a company letter head would be safe bet to answer RFE. He is ok to answer with this letter if I confirm to him to go ahead.

What are the chances of being rejected if I sumbit the above letter(notarized) as evidence of my experience?

Since, USCIS sent an RFE first time would they reject my application directly if they are not satisfied with the letter?

Also, submitting W2 and recent paystubs along with appointment letter would do any good?

What other alternate evidences, I would be able to provide?

I would greatly appreciate your response.
