What is a request for evidence (RFE)?

An “RFE” is a Request for Evidence. An RFE may be issued by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for a variety of reasons, including when something in a pending immigration application is unclear, a document required for the application is missing, information in your application needs to be updated or the officer makes a mistake.

An RFE does not mean that your case will be denied but rather that the immigration officer reviewing your case needs more information before he/she can make a decision.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm by phone at 704-442-8000 or via email with any additional questions and to receive more information.
