I came to the US in August to visit my sister and finally decided to stay for school. I filed a form I539 and said in the letter that I was interested in going to an English program and eventually get a degree in the US. I was going to school and working part time and quit my job before coming to this country. Now I got an RFE asking me to:
- Provide evidence that I have an employment and that I have a leave of absence for period I will be studying here.
I am not sure what to do since I never said in any of my applications that I had a job. Why would they ask me for a leave of absence if I did not say that I have a job? I am really taking school seriously and would like to get a degree before going to my country but I am not sure if I have a job waiting for me. Please help me!
The best course of action for you is to hire an experienced immigration attorney to help. There are several issues you have not addressed that an attorney should discuss with you. These include proper registration for student visa, funding for your support while in school, permission to work, OPT, to name a few. RFE's are often over-broad and request things that are not relevant in many circumstances.
