    Yes, it came from USCIS. If you think you can handle it yourself, go for it. mine was not that hard. They have given roughly 2 months for reply.

    They asked my current legal status, all passport pages, all us visas, travel history, and more evidence for persecution claims. not that hard. I did everything myself. No lawyer. Regarding RFE, read everything, and respond everything properly. Do not miss anything.

    no, one week at the DoS. Here is the timeline: mid july 2017- case received late Jan 2018- RFE requested mid Apr 2018- RFE received mid June 2018- case is on hold and sent to DoS for Recommendation, Mid July 2018- forms submitted to Dos Late August- Forms received by DoS and recommendation sent. DoS stage was fast. it may be because I sent the DoS package after USCIS asked for another opinion.

    I just checked my case status, DoS received the documents on August 23 and favorable recommendation has been sent on August 29. That's a record right , less than week :)

    Thank you. regarding RFE, They asked my current legal status, all passport pages, all us visas, travel history, and more evidence for persecution claims. not that hard. I did everything myself. I have sent my document to DoS mid July 2018. Now I checked and it's updated as of yesterday like this: including I-613 received. What is "other" referring here?

    Hi all, today my case is updated. When I was checking before, it was showing that it was on hold since June 12. When I checked today it showed On June 12, 2018, we requested another non-USCIS advisory opinion for your Form I-612. It is interesting. this means USCIS found persecution? Right ?

    Hi, I was planning to make an e-request due to outside the normal processing time this month. I have applied to CSC mid July 2017. The last time that I checked, the processing time for I-612 was showing 13 months. When I checked yesterday, it is showing 14 months at CSC now. So, I need to wait one more month for such a request. I also checked the historical average processing times for waivers, it is increasing every year. For example, It is 28.7 months for 2018. I have sent my documents to DOS on July 20th 2018. I am checking the case status, But DoS didn't updated my case yet. Even it is showing no information. Both USCIS and DoS are getting slower on waiver requests day by day...

    that's quite interesting. Why receiving i612 form take 4 months at DoS? Is this a typical processing time between Dos and USCIS?

    I am also wondering, Do I need to send the same supporting documents that I sent to USCIS? What exactly USCIS will forward to DoS?

    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    Yes, persecution. I started preparing documentation for DoS.I will try to mail them next week. I believe I will hear something from the USCIS by late July. By the way I am monitoring my case through this site: https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov This website does not provide updates anymore for my case: https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/landing.do

    Here is my timeline: mid july 2017- case received late Jan 2018- RFE requested mid Apr 2018- RFE received mid June 2018- case is on hold. being reviewed by USCIS Looks like I am at the critical part of the case. If USCIS ask for a 2nd opinion from DoS, my hope will continue. do you have any idea, how long would it take from this point to final approval? I didn't apply to DoS state yet, would it postpone my case?

    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    Hi all, I recently discovered this forum. I applied J1 waiver at July 2017 based on fear of persecution. In April 2018, RFE received by USCIS. Now, USCIS is reviewing my case. I also didn't send anything such as form 3035 to DOS yet. Do you know how long does it take USCIS to make a decision at this stage?
