Hi, do you have any idea why you got RFE. Is this self petition right (Eb1A). Why they required letter from employer. I applied I-485 December 09, 2016. PD: Nov 16, 2016. Nebraska. I am worried. If you like please contact via [email protected].

An RFE at the I-485 stage for showing that you continue to be engaged in your field of extraordinary ability is not uncommon for EB1A applicants. Please see other EB1A applications in the Trackitt case tracker. Although not required, I had filed a letter from my employer as part of my EB1A I-140 petition in October and applied for my I-485 only a month later - so this RFE did come as somewhat of a surprise. However, it was easy to respond to with another currently dated letter from my employer.

Is your GC employer-sponsored EB1A? if it is ok for your RFE? If it is self-petition then not required letter right.

My EB1A was self petitioned. One of the EB1A criteria I had used in my petition was "employed in a critical or essential capacity for an organization that has a distinguished reputation." As a result, several of my recommendation letters were from people in my current and previous organizations. As a result, my current employer was fully aware of my petition. As mentioned previously, an RFE at the I-485 stage for showing that you continue to be engaged in your field of extraordinary ability is not uncommon for EB1A applicants. The simplest way for me to respond was to get a currently dated letter from my employer and subsequently, the GC approval came in a week's time. I am not aware of your circumstances and can only advise you to talk to your immigration lawyer.

Hi croak811,

I belongs to EB-1A catagory and my I-140 was approved on March 2015. I am greatly worried of now. I need a great favor from you. If you like please contact me via [email protected]
