What is RFE? What is NOID? What is NOIR?

WHAT IS AN RFE?

AN RFE IS A REQUEST FOR EVIDENCE FROM USCIS (UNITED STATES CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES, HEREAFTER USCIS) REGARDING YOUR CASE. YOUR ABILITY TO COMPLETELY AND ACCURATELY RESPOND TO THE RFE CAN MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN APPROVAL OF YOUR CASE VERSUS A DENIAL. SOME OF THE KEYS TO REMEMBER WHEN RESONDING TO AN RFE IS:

  1. DO NOT PANIC;
  2. A TIMELY RESPONSE IS IMPERATIVE;
  3. READ AND REREAD THE RFE SO YOU ARE CLEAR REGARDING THE REQUEST;
  4. A DETAILED, COMPLETE RESPONSE IS IMPERATIVE;
  5. USCIS CAN PROVIDE ANYWHERE FROM 33 DAYS TO 87 DAYS TO RESPOND TO THE RFE SO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW MUCH TIME YOU HAVE TO GATHER AND RESPOND TO THE RFE;
  6. SENDING ALL DOCUMENTATION FOR THE RESPONSE TOGETHER IS IMPERATIVE;

WHAT IS A NOID?

A NOID IS A NOITICE OF INTENT TO DENY FROM USCIS MUST BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY. THE BURDEN IS ON THE APPLICANT TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE TO THE ADJUDICATOR AS TO WHY HE/SHE SHOULD NOT DENY THE CASE. HERE A TIMELY AND COMPREHESIVE RESPONSE IS NEEDED. FAILURE TO DO CAN RESULT IN THE DENIAL OF THE CASE.

WHAT IS A NOIR?

A NOIR IS A NOTICE IF INTENT TO REVOKE. THIS IS A NOTICE FROM USCIS THAT WILL REVOKE AN ALREADY APPROVED PEITITON UNLESS EVIDENCE TO REBUT THE FINDINGS OF USCIS ARE PROVIDED. NOIRS ARE OFTEN ISSUED FOR I-130 PETITIONS. HERE A TIMELY AND COMPREHESIVE RESPONSE IS NEEDED. FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN THE DENIAL OF THE CASE.

HAVING AN ATTORNEY RESPOND TO THE RFE, NOID, AND OR NOIR CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. THE RESPONSE SHOULD NOT ONLY COMPROMISE OF THE DOCUMENTATION BUT ALSO DISCUSS THE LEGAL BURDEN THAT THE APPLICANT IS MEETING AND WHY THE RESPONSE ADEQUATELY MEETS THIS BURDEN. ALSO, WHEN RESPONDING TO AN RFE, NOID OR NOIR, ONE IS CREATING A RECORD FOR THE CASE. IF THE CASE IS DENIED,  A COMPREHENSIVE AND GOOD RESPONSE CAN SUPPORT A SUCCESSFUL APPEAL.

IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN RFE, NOID AND OR NOIR FEEL FREE TO CALL KASTURI LAW, LLC TO DISCUSS YOUR CASE AT 6303928101.
