Default I485 rfe

Gurus / Attorney,

Please suggest..

I got RFE for my employment verification and bona fide marital status..I have following questions..

I am still working on current position but my salary is more now compared to two years ago when I submitted my I485. Both past and current salary is more than Labor requirement. In my employment verification RFE letter, should I mention my current salary OR would it be a problem for I485 petition.

I am submitting joint tax return as a proof of bona fide marital status. My annual modified gross income is more than my current salary as a result of yearend bonus. Once again, I hope it won't create a problem for I485 application.

I would highly appreciate your any advice in this regard.

Thanks,

As long as you are working in the same position you should be fine. Also since you are making more than what is specified in your labor there is no reason to be worried. At I485 stage all they want to validate is that the employer still has the position open and you are still employed. So there is no real need to worry about the greater income.

Your second question perhaps needs more documentation. Add your rental papers, bank statements, insurance statements (if you are paying for spouse) etc along with marriage pictures and if you have kids their BC.

Don't worry about this. My husband too got a similar RFE with regards to employment verification. Your wage being higher should not pose any problems to you. I believe this kind of RFE is more rampant now considering the economy and the recession we are in.

The key is "same or similar" employment. Wage, Location etc can be different.

Having a huge difference in wage (higher/lower), might need a good explanation, since a huge difference can point to question on the "same/similar" behavior of the new job.

yes 100% true, more salary is no concern. Designation and job roles is the key.

For marriage, attach
Marriage certificate, any joint accounts that you may have, marriage photos

yes, it will be in your lap as SOON as your pd becomes current... sorry, it does not mean what we all want it to mean... it could mean that your case gets pre-adjudicated and hence may be quickly approvable once pd is current...

My husband too replied to the RFE. So far, there has been only case resumed message. I am not sure if this kind of RFE will result in a Green Card. I pray that we all get our cards soon. I feel we have all given our share of sacrifices and played it fair and so far.

There are lot of people both ahead and behind you (of course with their own set of prayers), some get RFE's some don't. But yes as of this writing and at least for this year GC journey is going to be hard and very slow.
