I received RFE for I-130 visa in Dec 2012 and sent it to out.
After that there was No case status available nor online neither via 1-800 number.
Request for Additional evidence was sent on May 2013, which I never received.
I called multiple times, each and every time I was being told that the last event on the case was RFE on Dec 2012, they never mentioned the new one.
I have proof that I called multiple times on the status of the case, also I held a few Infopass appts - each time I was being told that case in process, until I started coming to local office every week.
I has handed an envelope with a denial Jan 17th. The decision was made Sep 2013
I was being misinformed since May 2013 on case status
Do I have any recourse? Can case be reopened based on USCIS misinforming me on status?
You may be able to get USCIS to reopen this case based on their error. However, they are not going to take your word for it. The ideal situation is where you have a complete copy of what you sent, AND can confirm delivery (this means you used FedEx or UPS, Priority Mail, Express Mail or Certified Mail and got delivery confirmation). Without that, you are probably better off re-filing.
