USCIS RFE Response Lawyer: Making the Case for You 

USCIS RFE Response Lawyer

Have you received a “Request for Evidence” (RFE) by the USCIS and feel uncertain about the next steps? Does it feel like this is a bad sign for the continuation of your immigration journey? It’s completely natural to feel this way. After all, dealing with immigration protocols can be intimidating, particularly when an RFE comes into play. A USCIS RFE response lawyer from our firm can make the best, most compelling case on your behalf. Always remember: a RFE isn’t an outright denial of your case, but a sign that immigration authorities need further information or clarifications to move forward. We can help you to move forward properly, responding how the authorities want to be responded to. 

Understanding the RFE 

The RFE is, in many ways, a comprehensive document. Often, the first paragraph outlines your application, what you applied for, when they received it, who processed it, as well as (and this is perhaps the most crucial part) that they lack sufficient evidence to make a determination about your case, one way or the other. It will also most likely contain records of all the documents already submitted in support of your application. While it’s easy to gloss over this, review it in detail. This can help you to note undisclosed or potentially unreviewed submissions. There very well could be items missing from the list that could aid the officer reviewing your case. You’ll also find the part that lists what the USCIS needs to decide about you. The good news: this section usually offers alternate options for the documentation required. For example, if a birth certificate is required, it may state that school records and “affidavits of birth” could be provided instead.The deadline is on the RFE too and, as you probably know by now, you don’t have a lot of time to respond to an RFE. That’s just one more reason it’s so important to reach out to us as soon as you can. 

Act Quickly with A USCIS RFE Response Lawyer

When faced with an RFE, time plays a crucial role. USCIS typically provides a period of one to three months (30 to 90 days) for response submission. While this may seem a generous span, it’s vital to act promptly. Any delay may put your case at risk. The sooner you get in touch with us, the faster we can get to work to deliver a timely, comprehensive response. It may sometimes feel overwhelming, but it is, indeed, an opportunity — an opportunity for clarity and to sway the USCIS decision in your favor.

Obtain the Required Documents with Ease

With years of experience under our belt, Rijal Law Firm is adept at navigating the maze of paperwork required for our clients. We specialize in personalizing our approach to match your unique situation. For some, this may mean providing straightforward documents such as birth certificates, but for others, this could include a variety of intricate documents and supplementary details. To ensure the simplest process for you, consultation with a seasoned attorney is key.

Making the Most of an Opportunity

The moment you receive an RFE, USCIS puts a hold on your petition review until your response has been received. This temporary interruption gives you the chance to collate and submit the required information effectively. Once they’ve received your response, USCIS will recommence the analysis, typically taking only a brief period of time to make a decision. However, it’s important to bear in mind that these timelines can occasionally stretch. We understand how complicated this can be, so we are there to support you every step of the way. 

Response to RFE: What to Avoid:

Make sure to avoid any discrepancies or lack of information. If there are any inconsistencies, clarify them when you submit your application. One thing we see often: make sure you explain any evidence in a foreign language. That means providing complete, certified translations. Speaking of clarity, not all scans or copies are easy to read (to say the least). You want any included to be as clear as possible. We can help with that, as well as with the general organization of your package. You want it to be as direct and straightforward as possible for the USCIS to review.
