L1A extention RFE California Service Center to prove manager function

I was in L1A Blanket and now applied for L1A extention and received RFE. Case is being processed in California Service Center…After reading all the information from search looks to be difficult to get the RFE approve by CSC. Is that the trend or good quality response can be approved? The RFE questions from fragomen is …can anyone say is it targeted RFE or just they generic one…since most of these questions details are present in the documented evidences with the original extention documentations…

Hi @Sitharaman_Tr

The chances of Approval of this type of RFE are low but we have seen that really good response get approval too.

So, there is no harm in trying.

Thanks Anil…Putting all the details in the response as per the RFE request.

Hi @Sitharaman_Tr, hope you are well! Did you get the extension approved after RFE ?

Yes …Approved and infact writing for my last extn… Incase if this is for your please make sure you do not give them the sense that you are performing the role by yourself…In my case have to written so points as iam performing the task rather overseeing it…Good Luck

@Sitharaman_Tr Thank you so much for your response. So have you applied now for your extension again. Can you provide the details as in if its Premium ? and if you received any RFE. We have applied for our second extension and we received a RFE but we still don’t know the reason though.

Currently iam preparing document for my last extn. Im hopefull it would be normal processing and it will go thorugh. Last RFE was in 2019 and it was under Premium processing …I have filled by Sep10th and got it approved by Sep13th…Good luck!! You will hear the good news soon.

Thank you @Sitharaman_Tr :slight_smile: Do you know of any cases whereL1A has been filed recently for extension in Premium and has been approved ? Not sure if Premium processing is causing rejections in extensions.
