Success in responding to an H-1B specialty occupation RFE questioning the beneficiary’s education qualifications

Disclaimer:

PAST APPROVAL OF A CASE IS NOT A GUARANTEE OR PREDICTION REGARDING THE OUTCOME OF FUTURE CASES. CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE.

We assisted an employer in successfully responding to a Request for Evidence (RFE) received subsequent to the filing of an H-1B (specialty occupation worker) extension petition. The RFE requested additional information regarding the employer and the beneficiary’s qualifications. More specifically, the RFE questioned the evidentiary value of an education evaluation that was provided with the petition, requesting additional evidence regarding the qualifications of the college official who authored the evaluation. The RFE also requested additional evidence that the beneficiary had progressively responsible experience and recognition of expertise through progressively responsible positions. We responded with additional information about the employer, and appropriately rebutted USCIS conclusions about the evaluation.  Over anticipated objections, we showed how the evaluation examined and evaluated existing qualifications of the beneficiary, and was NOT new information. The case was approved.

Status: Over anticipated objections, we showed how the evaluation examined and evaluated existing qualifications of the beneficiary, and was NOT new information. The case was approved.
