Request for Evidence (RFEs) from U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services Vermont Service Center will no longer be printed on yellow stock paper as of 7/6/15. RFEs issued after 7/6/15 will instead be printed on white paper.

A Request for Evidence (RFEs) is usually issued when additional documents are needed by U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) on an already filed and pending application.  Request for Evidence (RFEs) can be issued regarding a Form I-130, I-485, I-765, I-864, N-400, N-600, I-140, I-129, etc.

Usually when a Request for Evidence is issues, it will delay the processing of the pending application.  It is recommended to consult and hire an immigration lawyer to assist in responding to the Request for Evidence to ensure your pending application is not denied.

A request for evidence is made when an application/petition is lacking required documentation/evidence (initial evidence) or the officer needs more documentation/evidence (additional evidence) to determine an applicant’s eligibility for the benefit sought. USCIS may send you a request for evidence at any stage of our review. The request will indicate what evidence or information is needed for us to fully evaluate your application or petition. The notice will explain where to send the evidence and will give the deadline for your response. Your application or petition will be held in suspense during that time.
