Texas Service Center EB-1A RFEs

Our office is not alone in noticing the increased amount of RFEs issued in connection with EB-1A, Alien with Extraordinary Ability, filings.  We have noticed not only that some RFEs are very vague in terms of language and requirements but also that cases which are clearly well-documented and supported as part of the initial filing are issued RFE or even in some cases a straight denial.

The Texas Service Center has provided some assurance that they are undergoing an RFE review process starting October 2009 whereby they will inspect a portion of the outgoing EB-1A RFES for quality.  While this may be of little comfort to EB-1A petitioners already subject to an RFE, we hope that in the future the qualify and specificity of Texas Service Center RFES would improve.
