Gurus Please Help. RFE on 140


New Member
Hi Gurus,
I got RFE for my 140 to submit the experience letter from my previous employer.Employer is refusing to give the letter. He is also not intrested
in responding to the call. I have submitted the experience letter I had already to INS, but they are requesting for additional information like my duties responsibilities etc in a specific format. Some of my friends told that You can submit affidavits from your co-worker in such case. Gurus can you please let me know what should be the format of such letter and should it be notorized? what are my chances of getting 140 approved under this case.I am worried since I don't have much time to reply to RFE and my lawyer is not aware of the affidavits. Anybody who has faced similiar situation? Now this forum is my last hope. Please help.

no, I don't have any,sorry. I was just wonder why some people required the employment letter and the others don't required. I am in EB3 too, don't know if I will have to show that too.

iam confused about this exp letters !!!!!

guys, iam very confused about the experience letters and all. Some of the posts here says that "get the letter/affadavits from your previous co-workers" ....and some others says that "USCIS has been known to call/confirm experience, education directly."

Now, if the experience letters are from co-workers, then what will happen if USCIS call the employer ? OR do they call the person who gave the Affadavit ?

Iam in the same boat with issues getting experience letters. I wanted to file a substitution case. Honestly, the job responsibilties on this approved labor DOES NOT completely matches (70% match) up with my experience. In order to match, i need to get Affidavits from my "friend" co-workers.

can somebody shed some light here .... and let us know what happens at 140 stage and what does USCIS do to proves that you have indeed worked on specific technolgies.
