Default I-485 RFE List

Hello!

It may be worthwhile to have a list of the different types of RFE's that one can get after filing I-485.

I request members to post their experience with the following info:

- After how many days, months or years of filing I-485 did you get RFE
- The subject of the RFE
- The resolution/response of the RFE
- Did the RFE arrive at your address or your employer's address

Thank you.

Ams


=========================================

Some possible RFE's: -
I will continue to add to this list. Request members to post their experience in the above format.

1. Immunizations, Medical records
2. Proof that future job offer is still good - salary and job profile
3. For people on J1: Evidence of compliance with 2 Yr. HRR OR Proof of Waiver
4. Proof that marriage is geniune
5. Proof for ability to support dependents - Assets, Tax Returns, W2 etc.
6. Evidence related to birth - certificate, non availability, school records, affidavits etc.
7. Any RFE's after using provisions in AC21?

Awesome! It makes a good read.

But note that this doesn't cover all RFE cases.

For example, certain case officers will send a RFE on a birth certificate if the date of registration is not within one year of date of birth, while other case officers will not have a problem. If you look at the CIS Standard Operating Procedures, all it states is that the birth certificate must be timely registrered. Don't know who decided "one year" was timely!!!

Another example, according to the CIS Standard Operating Procedures, the case officer should not issue a RFE if the TB skin test is +ve but the chest x-ray is normal. Still, some case officers have sent a RFE asking for evidence that the applicant is undergoing the nine-month treatment!

Bottom line, is do all that you can to be assured of a smooth adjuication. But there's no guarantee that one case officer will not come up with his/her own interpretation of the CIS Standard Operating Procedures and start a new trend for RFEs.

Good luck.

Thanks,
Jayant

Note that this SOP is from September 2001 (see bottom of contents page http://www.imminfo.com/resources/cis...erview-1.html). We hardly need reminding that a lot has changed since then.

We need to dig up the current version of this doc.

Default RFE details...

- RFE issued on April 09, 2009 (1 yr and 8 mos)
- Sent to attorney's office; attorney received RFE April 15, 2009

- USCIS wanted copies of the original I-485 and G325A forms (for both my wife and me), filed in Aug. '07, signed again.
Nothing changed or updated, just our signatures above the "signatures" the attorney/representative put in the original forms for us, in 2007.
- Did the above and returned the signed copies to the attorney; waiting for an update on the case in the system online.

(Hopefully this is all they want and not more once they receive this...fingers crossed, not holding breath! )
