It is not uncommon when applying for a K1 Fiance Visa or a Marriage Visa that you will receive a Request For Evidence (RFE) during the process.
A Request For Evidence can be sent for a variety of reasons and is not cause for concern. Most times, a RFE is sent when something is missing or lost by USCIS, a copy of a particular document is not clear or is not an original as required, or maybe when more proof of a fact is needed. It is also sent when their are mistakes made in the application paperwork.
If USCIS is asking for something that you have already provided, don’t argue with them, just re-send it! USCIS does lose or misplace items but getting them to admit it is a waste of time. You are dealing with a large bureaucracy and its just best to comply without complaint.
Its important that you read the RFE very carefully and make sure you comply with the request. When submitting your evidence, don’t forget to attaché the cover letter sent by USCIS along with the RFE, which contains your case name and number.
Most times after complying with a RFE, your application is approved soon thereafter.
If you receive a RFE and have questions about it, you are welcome to call me to discuss. You can always reach me toll free at 1-888-515-3529.
