USCIS Clarifies Requests for Evidence

June 27th, 2013 by SRW Lawyers

Roy Maurer, online editor/manager for the Society for Human Resource Management  (SHRM), recently published an article about a new USCIS memo on the proper usage of a Request for Evidence (RFE).  The new memo was issued in response to a 2007 policy memo on RFE usage that CIS believed had been misunderstood by USCIS adjudication officers.  The surprise is that there was the intimation that USCIS adjudication officers may have been reticent to issue RFEs.

Andrew Wilson was quoted in the article as saying, “USCIS is to be commended for all efforts to create uniformity and consistency with its adjudications, but the thought that there was any hesitancy in issuing RFEs before is hard to believe, I have not seen any hesitancy to issue RFEs. It almost seems like a major victory to process an L-1 without receiving an RFE as part of the adjudication process.”
