Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 14 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help.

What specifically did they ask for in the RFE? Just the birth certificate in general because you never sent one in?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
They just asked for my birth certificate thats all. I did send one in but it was a black and white photocopy may be wasnt very legible to them
Expert:  Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq. replied 6 months ago.

Sometimes they ask for things that they already have. It's frustrating. If you send a more legible copy and they didn't ask for anything more specific, you should be fine with that, but when you go to the interview, take an original certified copy with you.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! If you have no further questions (at this time) please leave a positive rating for my service. I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars or smiley faces if you see them. If you do not see any stars or smiley faces, you may have to scroll up to the top of the page or click on my name and they should come out. Also, your session does NOT close when leaving a positive rating, so you can continue to ask additional questions without additional charge. Thank you for your understanding.
