Congrats amit_SP

Earlier you shared the RFE details, Can you please share the approach you took to respond to RFE specific to EVL for ex.

Did you get external evaluation done to show similarity between current job and original job offer ?

Anything specific you mentioned related to salary difference between current job and original job ?

Cheers

Here's my journey.
- Entered USA on H1B in April 1999
- Filed EB-3 India labor on Oct 29th, 2003 from NY
- Labor got cleared in Nov 2006 via Philadelphia Backlog Elimination Center
- I-140 filed via regular processing in Nov 2006
- I-140 refiled / approved via premium processing in Jan 2007 (Laywer realized that I was past 6 years of H1 and worked with my employer directly to re-file)
- I-485 filed in July 2007
- RFE received (needed all I-94 records) / responded in April 2009
- Switched job 1st time in Sept 2010, didn't file AC21
- Tried upgrade to EB2 via new employer, but company wasn't ready to refile due to its policies.
- Switched job 2nd time in Oct 2013, didn't file AC21
- Received RFE (EVL, G-25, I-693) in May 2013
- Responded to RFE in mid-June 2013, this time filed AC21 on my own
- Wife's case status was updated but mine wasn't even though both packages were delivered the same time
- Received approval emails for both me/my wife on 07/02
- Now awaiting for the cards to arrive

Thanks all for your wishes and all the best to you!!!
@Sunx_2004: I didn't get the external evaluation done, I got my current responsibilities on the employer verification letter along with other details (salary, title, joining date, intention to keep me employed etc) on the company letterhead. There was salary diff between 2003 (at the time of filing) and 2014 (at the time of RFE). Also my job responsibilities didn't match 100% (was a developer in 2003 and now PM/BA) but there were some common responsibilities. Based on the google search on varios immigration forums and friends, I didn't find much evidence where USCIS raised a follow-up RFE on such issues. So I took my chances to make the best use of time/money.

Hi Amit
Congrats. I feel so happy for you!

This whole RFE business is just there to terrorize we plain folk. IMO they should be abolished, except in really rare and deserving cases. They should survey, in past 10 years how many RFE cases got eventually APPROVED, even after initial denial. There should be a law against superfluous RFE's. I am sure, if statistics are taken it will reveal that many are just for creating noise and just lead to unnecessary and unjust prolonging of peoples' suffering

Default RFE response Update ?

I had received my RFE in April 2014, did all the medical, EVL sent to attorney in May. I think they sent it around May 3rd week. Till dates DHS case status is RFE sent.

I am traveling out of country on AP... what should/can i take care before i leave?

I tried to talk to level 2 officer, but as the call center is busy they are not transferring... ended up with a SR# and a phone SR# call back in 3-5 biz days.

Just really concerned... I saw other folks who has status update issue.... but were they updated after at least a month/two.

TIA

Posting again..

I got RFE on April 22nd. responded to it on May 12th. But no status change yet. Is this cause for concern. I know my dates are not current. Just checking.

Looks like many folks are not getting updates with dec priority date.. I'm thinking this is normal... Can anyone else share their experience?

Hi Gvenkat - I guess my attorney also mailed around May 14th approx..... I tried to call the CSR , but could not get hold of a level 2 officer... Attorney said i should raise a SR# to be on the safer side. I have been with same attorney & never had such an issue.

Did your attorney confirm that DHS has received the package?

gvenkat: If your mail was delivered per your mail carrier, u don't need to worry. Usually the status may not get updated. In my case, my wife's case status was updated and mine wasn't, even though both the packages were delivered same time. We both ended up getting approvals irrespective of the status change. Having said that, if the lack of status update is giving u sleepness nights (and I don't blame u as I can understand your situation); have a call with USCIS where they will confirm the receipt of the package.
