The Key Components of an Effective RFE Response

The Key Components of an Effective RFE Response

When responding to a Request for Evidence (RFE) from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, it's crucial to assemble a compelling package that addresses each point raised by the agency. An effective RFE response typically consists of two main components:

1. Attorney's Cover Letter

This crucial document, drafted by the immigration attorney, addresses each challenge raised in the RFE. It not only serves as an introduction to the supporting documentation but also robustly argues for visa approval by referencing applicable laws, regulations, and case law specific to the visa type. This letter demonstrates how the applicant meets the legal qualifications necessary for the visa, providing a strong foundation for the application. This letter also meticulously addresses each challenge raised in the RFE and explains how the submitted evidence supports the case for the visa.

2. Supporting Evidence

This part of the response includes crucial documents such as the business plan, personal endeavor plan, impact analysis report, or relevant study that supports the client’s case. It also contains additional documentation requested in the RFE. The evidence must be comprehensive and pertinent to the type of visa application.

Key to Success: The response must be solid, convincing, and realistic, backed by relevant regulations and data. It should effectively demonstrate that the visa criteria have been met comprehensively.

While these are general guidelines, each attorney may tailor the response based on the specific circumstances and needs of the case to enhance the likelihood of approval.

Understanding these components can greatly enhance your preparedness when facing an RFE, ensuring that your response is as robust as possible. For more detailed guidance, be sure to consult with a knowledgeable immigration attorney.
