K1 Visa RFE need help

Asked over 1 year ago - Tampa, FL

I filed for a K1 visa and have an Immigration Lawyer who is handling my case to make sure all documents are completed right and to avoid a RFE but still received one . I received Request for Evidence (RFE) and the current law firm that I am represented by said that there was a document that was missing a signature on that they overlooked and I came in and signed it for them to respond to the RFE. Should I be concerned about this case or the representation that I paid for as I cant understand why this would happen. I am looking for second opinion and even better representation. Thank you

    Answered . At this point I would trust the lawyer you hired . Mistakes are human. Anyone of us could have overlooked the lack of signature as well. No need to lash out at your lawyer.

    As you can see, he/she did a very good job until now, if the RFE ONLY requested a signature!

    Answered . In order to determine whether your attorney did a good job with your case, we would have to have access to your K-1 application and supporting documentation. You should ask your attorney if they foresee any further issues on your visa application. Unfortunately, RFEs do happen to even the most carefully prepared visa applications. If you are concerned with your current attorney, you are free to have another one look over your application.

    Answered . Unfortunately sometimes even the most seasoned attorney/law firm will miss something. If the firm was upfront with you regarding the oversight and the missed signature was the only issue addressed in the RFE, then I would suggest staying with them. At the end of the day, you need to feel comfortable with your representation and that is something only you can decide.
