How To Respond To USCIS RFEs

When the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issues a Request For Evidence (RFE) while your petition for permanent residence, citizenship, family or work visa is pending, it can be difficult to make sure you are providing sufficient evidence and addressing the RFE adequately to ensure that the petition will be approved. The Law Offices of Elsa Ayoub, P.L.L.C., can help you with the preparation of your response to the RFE to ensure that your case is approved. Our team knows what is required and what to expect for each type of petition.

An RFE is an indication that the USCIS needs more information to adjudicate your case. If you received an RFE, be thorough in providing the information that the USCIS requested. A competent attorney can streamline the process and advise regarding the substance of the response to the RFE.

What You Need To Know About RFEs

RFEs typically contain requests for very specific information in order to determine your eligibility for the visa or benefit requested in the application pending before the USCIS. It is imperative to address the RFE adequately and provide all the information requested or the application will be denied. Some RFEs deal with highly sophisticated legal issues, notwithstanding the fact that the evidence requested might seem very straightforward or easy to provide.

Some RFEs may be overreaching or request irrelevant evidence. It is essential to seek the advice and counsel of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to ensure that the application is approved.
