    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    Hello, just an update on my case. Timeline: Case submitted Jan 2018. RFE received Sep 2018. RFE response sent Nov 2018. Nothing since then... I gave a call to the USCIS as instructed in the RFE letter that if I don't hear back within 60 days after submitted my RFE response I should call them. The person on the phone confirmed that they have received my response and said that I should keep waiting as they are still processing cases from August 2017. He said the estimated current process time of J1 waiver in CA 13.5 to 17.5 months and my case is still in that timeline. Anyone waiting for longer than me? This is my 12th month since I have submitted my case.

    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    It has been almost 2 months since my RFE response was delivered at USCIS, but I haven't gotten a response or anything yet. Is there anything I should be worried about? Should I give them a call and ask them for the status or should I wait more? Has anyone else experience this?

    Hi @applicant23- How long you had to wait after sending your RFE response to the USCIS to hear back from them confirming that they have received your RFE response?

    Thank you. According to your timeline I am still couple months behind where your application is right now. I filled in Feb 2018. Received an RFE in October. Submitted response in November. Still waiting... even the online status of my application on uscis and dos hasn’t been changed. But I guess they don’t always update the online status on time.

    Thanks so much for the reply. How much time did it take for them to let you know after you sent them the RFE response?

    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    Hi, I received an RFE in October. Hired an attorney and worked on the RFE response and sent them back earlier this month. The due date for the RFE response was Nov 25th. The RFE response was sent in a certified mail which shows it was received by the USCIS. However, there is no updates on the USCIS website, not even anything about the RFE that they sent me. Is there anything I should be worried about?

    Thank you @carewaiver! My RFE came from USCIS. I was told by someone that the RFEs are supposed to come from DoS. I said I don't think so, but got unsure about it. Did your RFE come from USCIS too? I talked to couple lawyers, but their fee is way beyond my budget. Not really sure what to do. How long was your response to the RFE for persecution? Just want to get an idea if I should do it myself too. Thanks again for the reply.

    @carewaiver What did they request in the RFE? Did you hire a lawyer for working to prepare your RFE? I am also received an RFE this week. Any recommendations about a good lawyer? Thanks

    @carewaiver Congratulations!!! If you don't mind sharing, what's your case type? Based on persecution? You mean the whole process took only a week? 😮 or is it after you submitted the RFE? Will appreciate if you could share your case timeline. Thanks

    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    Can I ask everyone to pleas share their time lines? Here is mine: Late Jan 2018: USCIS received my i612 application Feb 2018: DOS received my i3035 and the package. Case status: Still pending 😞 I had my i-485 interview last week and my waiver has not been approved yet. I was so worried that the IO will deny my case and will have me start over everything again, but luckily that wasn't the case. The officer said that they will have my case on hold until my waiver is approved and as soon as I sent them the approval of my j1 waiver they will approve my i-485. I haven't received anything in mail yet, but at least that's what the officer told me. My best wishes to everyone!

    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    So, what is the step by step process? Does the US Department of State's send their recommendation to the USCIS or the other way around? I just checked the online status for USSD and USCIS and both says pending...
