I had filed my I 140 recently and got an RFE regarding degree Issue Date, need advice on this, can anyone please help?
In study i have completed bachelor of engineering(4 year course).
In RFE they did mention that they may consider a earlier date if i have a provisional degree certificate and it determines i have completed all course work to earn the degree and university or college has approved the degree as of date of provisional certificate.
In Response I am providing following documents :
Provisional Degree certificate : Where it's clearly written that i have completed all the requirements and has become eligible for award of degree in 2010.
Statement of Mark : I am providing all semester marksheet containing marks and everything.
Degree : I am also providing degree
Letter from University : I got a clarification letter from university what is that date which is mention as 2015 and when i earned the degree by completing all coursework.
Could you please confirm if this will suffice the need of clearing the RFE ?

I agree with my colleagues. If you need a definitive answer on RFE responses, the attorney needs to review the RFE, supporting documents and prepare a write up explaining to USCIS.
This response is general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known.
While it is impossible to confirm the response will satisfy the RFE without a review of the RFE and the responsive documents. It appears you have addressed the issue.
