Requests for evidence (RFEs) is a formal document from USCIS in which they ask a petitioner to send in additional documents when they feel like they do not have enough information to decide a case. Typically, applicants do not want to ever receive or respond to a request for evidence. RFEs have gotten very onerous, long, and meticulous. If USCIS can slow you down and find ways to deny your case, they are going to do it. This is one of those tactics and ways to make life difficult not only for you, but also for immigration lawyers. Therefore, if you receive a USCIS request for evidence in San Diego, you should reach out to an attorney at Hacking Law Practice, LLC.

Trend for RFEs Issued by USCIS

Many within the immigration system have begun to wonder if the  Immigration Service has gone too far in issuing the number of requests for evidence that have been coming in recent cases. At the outset of every application, our attorneys try to do everything we can to make sure that the file is as complete and as approvable as possible. However, in discussing this matter with other immigration attorneys across the country, we have all seen a tremendous uptick in the number of requests for evidence issued by USCIS. We have current cases in San Diego that are identical to those that we filed years ago, and now we are receiving many requests for evidence from USCIS that are onerous, time consuming, and worthless. We are forced to respond to all of these on behalf of our clients.

It causes delays, headaches, and a lot of busy work for our clients and us. We have seen time and time again people who have gotten their application denied because the request for evidence was not compliant with the case and all of the evidence that was requested was not provided. In these situations, it is beneficial to seek the help and guidance of a knowledgeable immigration attorney to ensure that an application can be approved

Responding to a Request for Evidence

If someone receives a request for evidence from USCIS, they should not just respond, but also fight back. In many kinds of immigration cases, people get RFEs, or checklists, or follow up forms where USCIS or the State Department are asking for more information. When someone receives one of these requests, our attorneys want applicants to have the mindset of not just looking at it as a chore or a hassle, but an opportunity to file a stronger case, an opportunity to answer all of their questions. An opportunity to fight back. Applicants should submit as much evidence as they can. If an applicant wants to get their case approved, they need to be forceful and strong.

Speak with a San Diego Attorney for Help with USCIS Requests for Evidence

Being prepared when going into USCIS can make or break whether or not a case gets approved. As such, applicants should be sure to do their due diligence when preparing their documents and case for review. When you do extra work behind the scenes you may be less likely to receive USCIS requests for evidence in your San Diego case. For help with RFEs, speak with an attorney at our firm.

Sriram Devanathan

im is a great attorney who always has his human side “ON”. The clients come first to him. When approached for time sensitive issues, he was readily available and was prompt. I have had to reach out to him for myself & have recommended him to others. He always welcomed everyone and gave patient hearing. And he would not mind recommending other attorneys’ if he feels that they would better serve that particular case. Even if it means one less client for him. That sums up who Jim is. Thank you Jim!

Bouchra Aanouz

This firm was amazing helping me with my husband’s case. Jim and his team were very responsive to all my questions and concerns. i wish I had consulted them earlier as my husband’s case was stuck in Administrative Processing for over a year and a half. Two months after I gave my case to Jim, my husband was granted his visa. Would definitely recommend them and already have recommended them to my friends.
