Posted on Apr 6, 2015. You will typically get an RFE on your I-485 application if your a deficiency, error or omission was discovered early on on any one of your applications. Wait for a few days (or weeks) and you'll find out exactly what it is that they want from you.

Getting an RFE before biometrics does not suggest USCIS will deny, or grant your application. The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case. 0 found this answer helpful

No biometrics have been scheduled during this time, which I assume it was because of everything being shut down because of COVID-19. I was wondering if anyone else is on the same boat, and has received an RFE without having their biometrics scheduled/done, or if this is normal. Thank you!

1 week later RFE received, it was to sent medical exams (I-693 form to be sent to USCIS processing center per letter request) I-693 mailed to USCIS 1 week later. Mar 12th, 2021: I-485 updated as RFE was received and USCIS has begun working on your case again. Apr 30th.

If you have recently received bio appt, please do share your timeline if you had to submit rfe before bio. Received an RFE on 11/30/2020 with a deadline of 2/18/2021. I still have not responded but already got a biometric notice for 2/18/2021. But it could be different for everyone.

Keep an eye on the mail, but just go take your biometrics and if you don't receive any RFE letter or your status doesn't change, I would call them and ask about that. One more thing, an RFE, in any stage may arrive at any moment. Biometrics letter is just a formality and everyone receives it before USCIS officers even look at your file besides its completion.

For AOS (I-485), you must provide all relevant evidence, before your applicant can be scheduled for interview. If evidence is missing, the NBC will issue a Request for Evidence (RFE). An RFE places a hold on the I-485 application, as well as the associated applications filed with the I-485 application (for example, Form I-130, Form I-765, Form I-131), until the NBC receives the missing initial evidence.

You Get Only One opportunity to Respond to an RFE! In responding to the RFE, you have 2options: 1. You can withdraw your application. 2. You can submit the requested evidence. The USCIS regulations oblige you to provide all the requested documentation at the same time. Be careful not to send only part of the documentation requested, because USCIS will make a decision with only the information it has.

Once you do get the biometric appointment letter, you can reschedule if you can't make it. Just make sure the letter goes to the right address. You can change your mailing address with USCIS or ask USPS to forward mail to a different address for a specific time.
