I had applied for my H1B extn and got an RFE. Lawyers replied to it and its almost 7 weeks now, haven't got any reply.

Is this a usual timeframe? how long will it usually take for USCIS to take any action on the RFE's after the reply was sent with all appropriate documents?

certainly there is a possibility for delay with pretty much anything that involves immigration. when does your current H1 expire? Even if it expires since you have a pending application, the reciept notice would possibly suffice to continue in legal status. I am definitely not an expert. Others might provide better idea.

It expired on April 21st, as you said, Lawyer confirmed I can be in legal status for 240 days... until USCIS comes back

Hi Raj Kumar,
I am completing my 9 years on H1B and my H1B is expiring. I have applied for the H1B extenstion since my I485 is still pending. What exactly does the RFE says....Can you please provide some details...it will be helpful....

USCIS record shows my entry year 2003 but actual year is 2005, so they came back saying 6 years is complete. Lawyer provided all the documents to prove I am here only from 2005...

Still waiting...
