Did you recently receive an RFE and aren’t sure what to do? Do you want to make sure that your response gives you the best possible opportunity for a successful outcome? Receiving an RFE can be frustrating or even scary. During this time, your application/petition will be halted which can feel like a rejection. You still have a chance, provided that you respond properly. That’s exactly what a USCIS RFE response lawyer from the Rijal Law Firm can help with.
What an RFE Is and What It Isn’t
An RFE (“Request for Evidence”) isn’t a rejection. It’s not the USCIS saying “no,” rather, it’s the USCIS saying “we need more evidence.” Specifically, we’ve found that the USCIS tends to send these when a would-be immigrant’s petition lacks supporting evidence. The good news is that, more often than not, this evidence is of the documentary kind. It could be something as simple as a copy of a document, such as a birth certificate, degree, passport, etc. There are some, however, that require a more complex response. We can help with any RFE that you or a loved one may receive.
What a USCIS RFE Response Lawyer Can Do
While an RFE isn’t, in and of itself, a rejection, it is a way of the USCIS saying: “if you don’t send us more evidence, you’re likely to be rejected.” In the event that you don’t respond to the RFE promptly or in a satisfactory manner, then, yes, unfortunately, your petition is likely to be rejected. That’s where we can help. We can help you to address exactly what the RFE is saying, so that you give the USCIS precisely what they’re asking for, thus giving the best possibility of a successful outcome.
Approval After NOID
In addition to helping clients with RFEs, we also help clients who receive a NOID (“Notice of Intent to Deny.”) More serious than an RFE, a NOID is often sent when there is an eligibility issue relating to a visa, if there is some proof of immigration status being violated, and so forth. Just as with an RFE, however, a NOID makes it possible for you to make a case for yourself. This is just one more reason why it’s so important to have an experienced attorney on your side. We can make sure that your response makes the strongest arguments on your behalf, supported by the most complete evidence and documentation.
Able to Work on Tight Deadlines
87 days. That’s how long you have to respond to an issued RFE. That’s not quite three months. If that seems like a long period of time, we can assure you that it is not. In that time, we can help you to produce the requested evidence and documents that will address every single request point by point. Additionally, we can prepare a well-written cover letter, make any important clarifications, and so much more. To see how we can help, schedule a free case evaluation through our site or by calling.
