Is the USCIS sending RFE's on most L1b Extensions? Are they sending standard rfe questions?

Columbus, OH |

Hi my employer filed for my l1b extension and i have received an RFE with some basic questions about my duties and project related day to day activities, training i have received, details about other from my company on the project, organizational/ reporting structure and other related questions. is the USCIS sending these standard questions these days? I have been in the US on the same project for the last 2 years and ha sent a detailed PRD with the extension application itself.i received the rfe within 8-10 days of filing the extension appln in normal processing. I wanted to know what are the chances of my extension getting approved if my company files the rfe response. your experience on such matters will be appreciated. thanks

USCIS is doing their job: if there is any concerns with the case, even initially the Service will issue an RFE as a routine procedural matter.
No one could speculate on your chances on your case, as it calls for a professional legal handing not idle speculations on line.

No they aren't sending them on 'most' L-1 extensions ... only on shaky businesses ... such as consulting companies ... they are a 'target' of USCIS .... and for good reason.

No one on this blog could even begin to respond to your 'chances of success' question .... we need to review the entire.
