RFE stands for ‘Request for Evidence’. It refers to the request from USCIS to the applicant for additional evidences pertaining to his/her application.

No. RFE refers to ‘Request for Evidence’ which implies that the USCIS requires additional evidences from you with regards to your application.

 What is the success rate of RFE filing at RFERESPONSE?
The success rate is over 90%. However, the denials of the unsuccessful cases have happened when critical evidences were not available to be presented to USCIS for further processing. This implies that our success rates are 100%.

The petitions filed for employment, citizenship, or permanent residency to United States may receive RFE when one or more evidences required for petition approval may be missing.

 What is the advantage of getting RFE response filed by your company?
We have filed over thousand RFE responses and thus, are at ease understanding the very lengthy RFE documents sent by USCIS. We possess good experience when it comes to understanding and writing responses to clauses which may be difficult to understand.

 Which petitions obtain RFE Requests majorly?
The H1-B petitions receive the RFE requests in most cases. The reason for this is mainly the educational qualifications or the equivalency of work experience of the H1-B applicant.

 Which documents are commonly requested by USCIS in a RFE?
The documents may be pertaining to the educational qualifications, time period of current or past stay in the United States, prior work experience, evidences to prove exceptional ability, or employer’s ability to bear the finances and payments of the employee.

 Where should the applicant send the evidences requested by USCIS?
The evidences requested by USCIS are to be submitted at the address mentioned on the receipt. The receipt does mention where and when the documents are expected.

 What is the status of the application when the RFE is issued by USCIS?
The status of the application is ‘in suspense’ when an RFE is issued to the applicant by the USCIS. Once the required documents or evidences are submitted by the applicant, the processing is resumed by USCIS.

 When is an RFE issued by USCIS?
If primary or secondary evidence is missing in an application, an RFE is issued to the applicant. Primary evidence refers to a document mentioned in the document checklist. Secondary evidence refers to a document that is additional evidence.
