I received the "new card production ordered" email today for both myself and wife after RFE documentation submission. If anyone is curious on time frame :

received RFE letter 7/9 from USCIS
Responded 8/3 (package received by USCIS on Monday morning)
Received 8/3 10 PM - confirmation that RFE docs received and case is back in processing
Received 8/5 6:30 PM - Card production ordered email.

I hope that this really is my GC and not a glitch which some users have reported where its gone back to Case review after a few days!

hi hariswaminathan,

Curious, was your case straight forward, you at the same co. as you applied with? Or was there changes in employment? Would like to know how you framed your EVL response, and if you had included evidence of employment like copy of a paycheck, and if the company is financially strong enough to compensate you as an employee.

arumoy 08-06-2015 12:38 PM

Congrats

Missed including the most important message, congratulations Hari. Hope you receive your card soon.

1. Changed my company/employer multiple times since 2007 filing.
2. My lawyer responded but I saw his note - he didn't respond with anything special at all - just cover note with Subject, here is the list of documents per your RFE request blah blah, that's all
3. No copy of any paycheck etc. My employer is a Global brand, so no issues with ability to pay etc.
4. The most important aspect in my opinion was my EVL letter. Since i had changed jobs multiple times, and frankly the original sponsorship job didn't match my current designation or role very closely from the description, I had to have that crafted and send it to my HR to have it approved. They did so with the approval of my manager and lots of red tape. They were unwilling to change my title either (which if you are aware in big companies, have bizarre names that don't match your business card (e.g. Outside Specialist III instead of Business Dev manager etc.)
5. Also I never filed AC21 and in my lawyer's response there was no mention of me invoking AC21 or any such thing. We just assumed officer will take note based on my application.

Let me know if you have any more questions and thanks all

Yes thank you. Its been a long and painful road. I haven't had the benefit of luck, timing or foresight to change my application to EB2 etc or jump the queue in any way. Just waited it out patiently. Most of my friends are Citizens already. Anyway no reason to whine today - i have to take the positive - I have been Greened! :)

Congrats man!
A few questions...

Do you have a template of EVL response letter you/your lawyer sent to USCIS?
Also, how much did your lawyer charge you for it?
Did you change the lawyer?

I picked the template off the web using google. I don't have the text anymore because i changed it for my own EVL and i only have scanned copy which i do not wish to distribute. I will look for the link and post it here.

I did not change my lawyer. He happened to be my original company sponsoring Lawyer who i retained on a personal level after i quit them.

I don't know what he charges as he hasn't billed me yet.

Thank you for doing this!

Its a typical employment letter. I guess it does not fit the bill when it comes to consulting setup. So , I would like to know if anyone has replied working in a small consulting firm (non-desi).

Thanks!
