I-1145 Received: 08/21/2012
Service Center: Nebraska
Biometric Done: 09/12/2012

Original Evidence:

Entering before 16:

Identity and age:
Copy of old State ID card (from 9 years ago)
translated birth certificate

5 years:
Utilities letter showing service since 2004
Letter from landlord

H.S. grad:
High School diploma

Entered before age 16:
High School transcript
Letter with official records of Boy Scouts of America (Eagle rank)

Present on June 15th:
bank statement with transactions on that specific date and dates around it

Present up until filing:
Bank Statements
Utility Bills

RFE Notice Date: 10/9/12(text&LUD) 10/14/12 (received in the mail)
RFE Reason: Need more proof of 5 years continued.
In the listing of what I had sent the letter did not include the letter from the utility expressing that I had had continous service since 2004.
RFE Response: Sent more proof. I had prepared extra proof just in case. I sent in 60+ bank statements covering transaction from before 6/2007 and up to past the filing date (8/15/12).
RFE Sent Date: 10/15/2012 via priority mail to the address on the included RFE envelope. Since I sent a box I put the envelope they sent (it includes a barcode with you case number) AND the RFE letter on the top of the evidence. I also wrote a letter as to what I was responding to and my proof attached.
RFE Delivered: 10/17/2012 USPS confirmed
Text status update from USCIS: 10/17/2012 (yes, same day)

Follow-up/Comment: Think about and prepare documentation of anything you may have been light on. The letter is VERY specific as to what they want more proof on. I was suprised it was not just a standard saying "send more proof of this." It actually detailed what I had sent with dates and said that was insufficient. See my notes on each section.

It was pretty much it! It was a really short application, 10 pages of evidences and 10 pages of immigration papper work. They probably going to ask to prove more evidences of stayed here without leave the country or they are asking for more identification which now i have my renewed passport. Its all good i have everything for every single month since 2007 until now. I hope they dont ask for 2002-2006 because the only thing i have is the high school paper work which i think is more than enough. Ill keep it update as soon i receive the letter.

My only guess would be I didn’t show enough evidence for the year 2007. I have a 2007 tax return I hope that’s enough; I forgot to send it because I figured I have enough evidence. I was more worried that maybe I had to much evidence.

Which makes sense, seeing how I've already received my EAD card on oct 31st and my ssn came in the mail today. Still, I don't understand why it had to be so complicated. lol. but yay mee.

Great we can help each other :)

So I've been reading about the RFE and some seem to be proof of continuous residence from 2011 to June 15, 2012. I came here when I was 4 in 1998 with a B2. So I put copies of old passport with I-94, new passport, birth certificate and translation, school records since 2003-2011, notarized copies of my middle school diploma ('07) and high school diploma ('11), copy of college acceptance ('11), and finally bank statements from May 10th to June 11, 2012, June 12th to July 11th 2012, and July 12th to August 9th 2012.

Plus I also added copies of my EAD and SN which are legal, because I had a case that didn't go thru. Which I put my Alien and SN # on my application.

I'm concerned about getting and RFE because I don't know if I have enough proof from 2011 to 2012. I graduated June 2011 (HS Diploma) and I put things for mid 2012 but not the beginning so I feel like the 6mths may be what kills me...Thoughts?

PS: I added a copy of my college ID it said *Fall 2012* and in the app my last day attended to classes was May 5th, 2011 because that was the end of the Spring Semester, and when I filled out my application the Fall semester hadn't started.

Yes as I was explained it doesn't have to be specifically June 15th, but it does have to be around there. I submitted bank statements, which had transactions from June 8th, 11, 25th. The ironic thing for me is that June 15th was my birthday so everyone paid for me at dinner and movies lol.

Did the boarding pass say it was from NY to Seattle? I think your fine.
