In such EVC model cases, the H1B employee is placed at the worksite of a company other than the H1B petitioning employer, frequently as a result of a chain of contracts through multiple vendors. These include documents such as employment contracts and service agreements with clients or vendors. The most important document on the list, however — and the one that USCIS officers pay the most attention to — is a proper end-client letter. Ideally, the end-client letter should describe the duties to be performed by the H1B employee at the client worksite, specify the expected duration of the project, and explicitly state that the H1B worker is not considered to be an employee of the end-client, but rather remains under the control of the petitioning employer.
The letter should be on the letterhead of the end-client and signed by an appropriate employee of the end-client.
USCIS requests for "initial evidence (I-485)"
The USCIS has repeatedly made it clear that an end-client letter is not required for approval of an H1B petition, and that H1B employers are allowed to provide other comparable documentation instead.
However, the absence of an end-client letter when filing under an E-V-C model makes it likely that the case will receive a request for evidence RFE. It also greatly increases the risk of denial. When filing such a case, it is important to provide the USCIS with a clear picture of the employer-employee relationship.
Failure to properly address this matter is likely to result in denial of the petition.Skip to main content.

USCIS apologizes for any inconvenience caused by not conducting commensurate outreach and providing time for affected stakeholders to adjust their practices. USCIS realizes that this change will affect our stakeholders, and we considered suspending implementation of the new policy temporarily to provide an opportunity for those affected to adjust. However, we determined that a temporary suspension would not be practical due to the estimated 4-to-6 week delay associated with the required systems adjustments.
In addition, on Nov. Under the amendments made by this rule, documents produced as the result of an approved application or petition will be mailed directly to the address provided by the party seeking the benefit on the applicable application or petition and not that specified by the attorney or accredited representative on a Form G Our objective is to make sure that original receipts, decisions, and documents produced as a result of approved applications or petitions are sent to the address specified by the party making the request.

H1 they have already withdrawn. Yes, you can. H4 visa has nothing to do with H1B employer. So, the H4 beneficiary spouse can file for withdrawal themselves. In-fact, if you can recall, when you file for H4 petition along with your H1B, the H4 application form is signed by your spouse explicitly.
Your employer and its attorney just file H4 for your dependents as a courtesy. Again Thank you so much. I was filling the withdrawal letter in this case, for H4 COS and EAD withdrawals, the petitioner should be no one and I can remove that, only the beneficiary name should be of my wife, right?
Or in both petitioner and beneficiary my wife name should be there? Have you seen any updates to your case online? Please help. Hi ankitgarg16Can you please let me know how did it went? Did you get any acknowledgement and did they honor it? Any issues? I sent it via UPS with tracking no. I am waiting for that to be updated so that I can file EAD again.
Thanks ankitgarg16 for the response. We appreciate it. Thanks Ankit. Wondering why you are withdrawing and refiling again? Can you also please help what service center did you sent and when was the COS filed? What is your plan if for some reason they approved COS before processing your withdrawal letter?
Thanks for prompt response. I guess that would also be fine.Forums New posts Search forums. What's new New posts New profile posts Latest activity. Members Current visitors New profile posts Search profile posts. Log in Register. Search titles only.
Can that be concluded if I received the yellow letter? Thanks in advance for your help. What's the yellow letter? What does it read? Bobsmyth Volunteer Moderator Aug 24, The yellow letter case file review is sent out by default to those who have disclosed certain types of issues that require further evidence to be brought to interview. It doesn't for sure signal that your background check is complete or that you are in queue for an interviewbut some have reported receiving their interview letter soon after receiving CFR letter.
Today i got the yellow letter it says i have to bring the income tax return but i submitted it already with my application huh oh well whatever they want. Hopefully the interview is around the corner. Mine has already passed two weeks and no sign of getting the IL.
Does it mean that there might be something wrong in biometric? Is there a way to check the status of FP? TheRealCanadian said:. Depends on the location. My CFR letter took two months after fingerprinting.
But it is strange for the timeline variations in the yellow CFR letter. I got a yellow letter and all it mentioned was that I should bring my driver's license at the time of the interview. I hope interview letter is around the corner. You must log in or register to reply here.I did Biometrics today. Yesterday I received a courtesy letter from USCIS on a yellow paper informing me that they have reviewed my documents and noticed that I haven't submitted the form i and to bring an updated from medical exam at an interview.
However, I haven't received an interview notice. I know it's too soon for that but I was wondering what it meant. I don't know from what visa or status are adjusting from but they are basically requesting you the vaccination form.
If you are adjusting from a k1 visa for example a fiance visa you need to go through a medical examination at your home country that also includes vaccines. The doctor who performed the examination must have given you a copy of your vaccination record that must be submitted with the AoS package.
The thing is that I dont know fro where you are adjusting form. They are telling you, you will get infact a RFE but you need to wait until you get it and you must follow anything that is written there. Usually the AoS process takes TIME, just to get the temporary employment card, is taking 90 days this is something you receive while you wait for the green card and according to timelines I've seen so far, the AoS process is taking 6 to 11 months.
You need to wait until you get the rfebut in the midtime dont send anything. If you have a copy of your medical just hold onto it, and if you dont You did not submit a medical with your application and the notice you received indicates as much. It is telling you that you will need to take a completed medical to your interview. I have received the same letter, but I already sent the completed singed and sealed I It is not expired because I completed it 4 months ago.
Because the copy was not sealed by the doctor. I've been reading persons posts who say that they got RFE after the interview for their i because of it being expired and later getting their green card after they would have submitted it. If they say to bring it to the interview or wait until you get an RFE then do so.
It may also be a case whereby your civil surgeon neglected to input the information correctly or probably missed some part of it. Keeps us updated. Good luck.Jump to content.
Posted 08 July - AM. These things are normaly attached to US citizen spouse's I as well as joint sponsor's I IRS transcripts can be ordered for free. Thanks, dnoblett! The thing is, we already submitted the IRS transcripts for both my husband and his parents co-sponsor for the most recent 3 yrs, not just 1 year. We don't understand why they're still asking for them.
We can only provide his parents' employment letter and pay stubs, and maybe also a couple of his internship pay stubs.Why You Should Never Send A Letter to USCIS
He's afraid that they're not enough evidence. Posted 08 July - PM. Posted 09 July - AM. So we had his parents be the co-sponsor. We already submitted both my husband's and his parents' W-2 's and IRS for the past 3 years. But this letter still asks for the tax returns for the most recent year. Do they not find them so many pages??? Posted 10 July - PM.
Request For Evidence RFE I-693 During Adjustment of Status
Posted 13 July - AM. Thank you, Qiao Zhi and Xiao ping! I'm planning to mail them out next Monday. We're doing everything as fast as we can. I really need to get a good job I see that you don't have your timeline posted in your signature. And when was your case transferred to CSC?Louis, Missouri. We had a couple of situations lately where people came to us with screwed up immigration cases. Now, obviously, you can send USCIS general letters asking them questions about the status your case and things like that.
If you are finding yourself thinking about, even just thinking about sending a letter to USCIS, you really, really, really should go first and talk to an experienced immigration attorney. Let me tell you what happens. In this situation, a man had filed for an I based on his marriage to a U. He had had an arrest for domestic violence. Although the charges were ultimately dropped because his wife decided to not press charges, USCIS found out about it and asked him about during his interview.
When you read the letter, it just … Every paragraph got worse and worse. He basically tried to justify why it was okay for him to have hit his wife in this one situation.
Thanks for the letter. Now we know that we should just go ahead and approve this case. Instead, give us a call at Or you can email us at info hackinglawpractice.
