Request For Evidence (RFE) DIY Package Provides
Detailed RFE Response Process and Samples of RFE Reply to USCIS

A Request For Evidence (RFE) is made by USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) when an immigration or visa application is lacking required evidence, or the immigration officer needs additional evidence to determine the eligibility of an applicant for the benefit sought. USCIS may send a request for evidence at any stage of their review for an green card petition or working visa application. The RFE request will indicate what evidence or information is needed for USCIS to fully evaluate an application. The RFE notice will explain where to send the evidence, and will give the deadline for an RFE response. The green card petition or visa application will be held in suspense during the RFE request and response review time.

If you receive an Request For Evidence request  or RFE notice from USCIS, it does not mean that the denial of your application is inevitable. It just mean that USCIS needs more information from you in order to make a decision. Therefore you need to try your best to make sure that you return your RFE response with all the requested evidence before the deadline given by USCIS. If you fail to respond, or respond without all required evidence and a carefully prepared RFE cover letter, USCIS will either determine that you abandoned your application and issue a denial, or it will make an ultimate decision on your case without the information that it requested, which most likely will result in a denial. That is why it is very important that you should response an Request For Evidence request very carefully and thoroughly.

RFE Response Resources for Request For Evidence Request from USCIS

The Request for Evidence is a letter or notice that USCIS adjudication officer uses to request additional information for pending applications. The Request For Evidence is a formal response from USCIS for an immigrant petition or working visa application, issued by USCIS when insufficient or suspicious documents are found in a pending petition for an immigration benefit. Once a timely response to the request for evidence is received by USCIS, they will review the evidence that the petitioner submitted, and USCIS will continue the adjudication of application or petition in light of the new evidence. Based upon the response from the petitioner, USCIS will subsequently makes a decision to adjudicate or deny the petition.

USCIS has the power to deny an immigration applications without first issuing RFE, so an applicant should be thankful for the opportunity to correct information, provide more documentation and evidence, and convince the immigration officers to approve the application. After you receive an RFE from USCIS, you should read it carefully, and determine what kind of evidence or documents are requested. Some RFEs are more complex than the others. Depending on the complexity of the RFE, it may take from 30 days to 84 days for an applicant to response what the USCIS officer indicates in the letter. It is imperative that you file the RFE response by the deadline. Late response will not be allowed by USCIS. If you ignore the RFE, USCIS will make a decision based on the submitted evidence, which generally will be unfavorable.

10 Points to remember when answering an RFE (Request for Evidence) from USCIS (Immigration Services)

By  Shah Peerally, Esq – Managing attorney of Shah Peerally Law Group PC

A Request for Evidence (RFE) is a common tool used by the USCIS (Immigration services) to ask for additional proof in order to make a decision on your case. RFEs are often in point form requesting factual information from either the beneficiary or petitioner. While many RFEs are simple, lately many RFE’s have become more complicated and tend to require legal assessment before they can be answered. Our law firm, having filed more than 1000 immigration cases, is quite familiar with responding to RFEs.

Based on our experience, we have compiled a 10 Point legal guide to assist you in answering your RFEs. Note that this guide does not cover every single RFE related issue. We highly recommend that you retain a lawyer to help you on your case.

A well prepared case can avoid an RFE

RFEs are usually requested because either the petitioner or beneficiary has not provided sufficient proofs or clarification in their original package. Therefore, preparing a completed and detailed package with your application or answer at the outset is crucial to the success of your case. On the other hand, putting irrelevant and unnecessary information in your application or petition can harm you. Professional help in preparing your case is always recommended. A good lawyer can make a big difference for the final outcome of your case.

Read the RFE carefully

Having dealt with so many RFEs, we have noticed that many people do not want to read the RFEs properly or they simply do not understand the lingo. If you do not understand all the questions or statements, please consult with a lawyer.

Do not panic when you receive the RFE

As mentioned earlier, RFEs are common tools in the USCIS toolbox. You should not panic. On the other hand, you shouldn‘t take it lightly. If you do not have the courage or knowledge to deal with them, seek help with a lawyer familiar with immigration law to assist you.

Do not miss the deadline when answering the RFE

Answer your RFEs on time. Indeed, many people believe that they can request additional time to answer their RFEs. Unfortunatly, USCIS has not been giving additional time to answer RFEs lately. Missing the deadline will most likely result in a denial. At this point, you may have to file an appeal or a motion to reopen the case. Therefore it bears repeating: Do not be late.

Do not file the RFE in parts

Many of our clients tend to think that they can answer part of the RFE and then wait for USCIS to ask for more. Unfortunately, the way USCIS (or Immigration Services) functions, they rarely send another RFE to give you another chance. The first RFE you receive is normally your only chance to give USCIS the clarification they require. Therefore, it is essential that you answer all the questions as concisely as possible and provide all the evidence requested of you at the same time. Failure to do so will probably result in a denial.

Organize your answer in a clear manner

Remember you are not writing an essay. Stay concise and to the point. Make sure you document your answer with exhibits. Also make sure you have a table of contents. Write your RFE in a way that’s easy to navigate. Keep in mind that an actual person will be reading your RFE, thus the more comprehensible your RFE is the better your chances for approval.

Use a lawyer to answer, if possible

Using a lawyer can make a big difference. Often times RFEs have important points of law which need to be addressed by someone with legal knowledge. For example, lately, the Neufeld Memo regarding H-1Bs involves many important points of law that only someone with legal knowledge will be able to adequatly tackle. You should remember that only an attorney can give legal advice. Do not be fooled by unscrupulous “consultants” not licensed to practice law. Is it worth losing your immigration case just to save some money? Do not forget that denial of your case can result in a permanent ban. Again, having a good lawyer on your side can make a big difference.

Remember to put the colored paper at the top of your answer

Most RFEs are sent in colored paper (usually blue). It is essential that this cover letter goes above all your answers including the cover letter. Failure to do this might delay your case or even possibly lead to a rejected case.

Make sure you are mailing to the right address

The RFE will indicate where you should mail your answer. Make sure you are mailing it to the right address. If you fail to comply, the answer will probably be lost and you may get a denial.

Be polite when answering

Last but not least, be polite when you write your RFE. I have seen cases where the person answering will be insulting USCIS because they have either asked for something already submitted or asking for clarification in a non relevant matter. Remember, many cases are decided by the discretion of the adjudicating officer. Answering in a polite and civilized manner can go a long way towards helping your case.

The above are just a few points to remember when answering an RFE. Unfortunately, there are many other issues to consider in your answer. We always recommend having legal assistance while filing a case. Remember a well prepared case usually results in a positive outcome.
