I-140 Granted / Request for evidence (RFE) defeated


If your I-140 petition is denied by USCIS

I-140 Granted/RFE Defeated. USCIS issues RFE to deny I-140. The clock starts on the day that USCIS receives your RFE response. The good news is that an RFE is not inherently a bad sign. Many approved I-140 Granted cases start with a RFE Defeated. The quickest and easiest way to confirm receipt of your RFE response is to go online. USCIS has an online case tracking tool, but you need your receipt number to use it. It just means that USCIS needs more information from you to make a decision on your application. USCIS issues a Request for Evidence when an applicant has not provided sufficient documentation or information in an original package. The online case status update page is often behind schedule or could reflect outdated or incorrect information. It is all a part of the evaluation process, and there is no need to panic. An application for lawful permanent residence on the basis of employment can only proceed if USCIS has approved the I-140. If you have received an I 140 RFE for your employment-based Green Card, you will want to understand what this means for your petition.
