Default Why only Dependent applicant received RFE on I-693 (Medical Examination)

Last week my wife's I-485 got an RFE on Medical Examination and Photos. Why is that only my wife got it and not me the primary applicant? Any thoughts. I have read some time ago that if the Medical examinations are 1 year older at the time of application processing they would request for a new one, is that still true?

Looking for your replies.

Thanks,
Raj

Call and ask them how can they do this huge mistake and they will issue one for you as well !

My older son got a cut on his right thumb yesterday and I was putting a bandage on it and my younger one came and said - " I want also a bandage. Why only him ? Why can't I have it ? " Would you pl answer him ?

There may not be a logical reason as to why your wife got an RFE for Medical and not you.

I had a similar situation. I got an RFE for photos for AP application. But my wife did not get one. We had both got our pictures taken and processed at the same location. There was no issue with quality of photo either.

Now we both have our AP. I do not care why she did not get an RFE.

Maybe if you explain the details of the RFE someone may be able to discuss about it.

Without details asking why did you not receive RFE does not make sense.

I-485 RFE details.

Needed evidences:

1. 2 Passport size photos in USCIS specs.
2. Form I-693 completed by civil surgeon.

We did submit all these requested I-693 and photos during the initial filing. My question is, does USCIS request for new I-693 if the original one submitted is older than one year or more?

Seems to me (I am taking a wild guess) USCIS must have "misplaced" the I-693 of your spouse. It is unfair to ask again to submit the I-693 especially if its going to cause another dent of $400 to your pocket. However, if the surgeon can issue another one without any charges and without any tests again, then go for it and re-submit.

Otherwise, call USCIS Customer care and inquire about it (as to why they are asking again for the medicals).

EDIT: This to answer your question "does USCIS request for new I-693 if the original one submitted is older than one year or more?"

The Rule is, Form I-693 must be submitted within one year of taking the medical examination.

As far as i know medicals are valid for 2 1/2 years.

Answer to your next question is, there could be many possibilities.
1. USCIS might have lost your original 693
2. There could be something which is not clear in the original 693 etc

Don't worry much. Just give them what they asked.
Its good that they opened your file.

I had got an RFE on my 485 for a TB retest.

My lawyer suggested that i get the whole medical done again just so that they do not request any more tests as it had been more than a year.

On the other hand, my wife's medical was OK. so we did not have to do anything.

I think it is safer to get the whole medical re done if you got an medical related RFE.

Thank you all. I am going to get an appointment with the doctor (CS) who is in my medical group. I will keep you all posted how this goes and about the odd file processing even though my PD is way far from the current PD date!
