Default Fragomen for responding to RFE

No choice. Employer is a big bank and would not talk to outside firms. Would not provide any letter for GC and will not allow my manager to issue any letter unless the case is transferred to Fragomen. Good thing is that they are paying for Fragomen expenses.

But my previous attorney already charged me $525 just for providing the format of the letter that I needed to get for him to respond to the RFE, the letter which I ultimately could not get from my HR/supervisor.

Now my basic worry is what/how do I ask my previous attorney to send my complete file to me. I think I'll have to pay for that too

nvk627 If you are willing to pay someone, who will refuse?

You are looking to shell out money even before thinking if you really need to pay to get paperwork?

Why does it take money to simply mail you a file of 10-15 papers? What kind of immigration service is needed to put it in an envelope and write your address on it? Why do you think you should pay for it when you have already been paying for so many years till now?
Just tell you need paperwork ASAP.

You do not know how much power you have. As a customer you have many rights and being internet literate you can do a lot.

Default Status Change

My status stays as "RFE response review" for the last 2 weeks. From some of the previous posts, it seems like the status changed to "Initial Review" after a week for may of of them.
Just wanted to know mine is an anomaly or its taking time for USCIS to review all the cases.

As per my experience Fragomen can easily ask for your file from your previous attorney (in legal terms some call it sending a love letter) obviously there is no charge or cost to you. So make sure you understand and execute your rights. It is your file and you have the right to have any attorney/lawyer represent you whom you chose. It is similar to changing your doctor, the new doctor gets your medical records transferred without you paying for it

I'm not a big contributor to IV but I read thru various forums regularly.

The dates that are going to be current in next months, have a chance of getting RFEs

What about dates that are not going to be current in couple of years?

In my case, I sent the AC21 letters in Feb '13. But still got the RFE on my 485 in June, and without even replying to the RFE I got the approval within 2 weeks after my dates became current. It seems they issued RFE, but later saw the AC21 docs or whatever I don't understand.

Sareesh,

Did you switch jobs while I-485 pending? Did you file AC21? I am trying to see if there is a pattern...for why some EB3Is are getting RFE even though the PD is in 2004 or 2005.
