Request for Evidence

request for evidence, or RFE, is when USCIS requires more information or evidence before they can proceed any further with your case. There are many reasons one may receive an RFE, even if their visa petition was seemingly rock-solid. Often times, they can be stressful. Other times, fairly simple to deal with. Whatever you do, don’t ignore an RFE, unless you want a denial.

If you receive an RFE for a reason not mentioned on this list, we’d love to hear from you so we can add it.
