My H1 is denied this year due to some gross error from the USCIS. We have reopened the case this month Does anyone of you have similar denial reason and any idea does it take same processing time as others?

What do you mean by gross error from USCIS? What was your denial reason? Did you have RFE for this before the denial? What was the RFE for?

@H1Dreamer

 

I never got any RFE directly my status went from Initial review to Denial decision.

Reason: USCIS has abandoned my case saying "we have sent you an RFE and there was no response in the given timeline" thus denied.

The fact is we never received an RFE so filed a MTR this January. 

 

So I was wondering if any of you or your friends faced similar issue if so please let me know how many days did it take for processing and what was the decision.

Have been following threads related to MTR, thanks for all the posts. Here is my situation:

 

Case Type : Appeal I290 B

Center: California Service Center

Date Applied : June 13, 2013

Current Status: Initial Review

 

H1b denied as the officer didn't find E-E relationship and  lack of client letter. Raised a service request , called USCIS multiple times to check my status and they said they can't provide a time frame for processing my I290B petition. Still waiting..

As my project got over on the day my H1b packet was sent on Mar 28, 2013. I couldn't provide enough documentation to support my RFE other than mid-vendor letter. I got a new project in May 2013 and filed MTR with the same employer with new LCA, client letter and all sufficient documentation. 50 -50 chances, but still waiting for some reply.

Naveen - check the status of your old request number too..?? I did not quite get it..

You would have your old request number for your I129 (the number you got when you applied for H1B back in April 2013) and a new request number for your I290b (appeal), so it looks like you said that it has moved to post decision for the new request number for I290b.

I was suggesting you to look at your old request number.

 

My old request number gives: "At this time USCIS cannot provide you with information for your case. Please contact the NCSC 1 (800) 375-5283 for additional information."

 

New request number for I290b gives: "On August 19, 2013, we received this I290B NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE COMMISSIONER, and mailed you a notice describing how we will process your case."

Hey Thejas28 even I am not sure looks like VSC is pretty slow in processing. Don't know when they'll give a decision. Did you raise service request?
