If I get an RFE, how long do I have to respond?

The deadline for a Request for Evidence (RFE) generally appears at the bottom of the RFE document, informing the applicant how long they have to gather the missing evidence and submit the documents to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

In the unlikely event you get an RFE, RapidVisa can help you respond to the government as part of our premium package.

What does it mean that my case is ready to be scheduled for an interview?

"Case Ready To Be Scheduled for An Interview" simply means the USCIS officer reviewing a green card applicant’s case did not find any initial issues with the application. Their chances of getting an RFE are very low right now, which is good news! Their local USCIS office now has the application in their hands.

This does not necessarily mean an interview will happen anytime soon; it can still take months for an applicant to receive their interview date. The status that does signify an interview notice is "Interview is Ready to Be Scheduled." The applicant will receive a notice in the mail one month before the interview.
