How to Response the RFE Request for Judging the Work of Others?

Hi William,

In my
EB1 extraordinary ability petition (EB-1A petition), I claimed the criteria of "judging the work of others in the same or an allied field".  Now, how to response the USCIS Request For Evidence (RFE) notice for the request of judging the work of others?


The USCIS may send an Request For Evidence (RFE) notice to the EB-1A petitioner if the evidence only shows an invitation to judge the work of others, because USCIS needs the evidence that the EB-1A beneficiary actually judged the work of others.

It is important that the EB-1A beneficiary provides evidence supporting the field of endeavor and demonstrating that the contributions to the field are of major importance. An 
Request For Evidence may be issued by USCIS if an EB-1A beneficiary has judged the work of others that appear to be in a field unrelated to the beneficiary’s field of expertise.

After the EB1 extraordinary ability petitioner receives the RFE notice for
judging of the work of others , the petitioner should submit evidence, such as information about the editorial board that they serve on, or emails or letters that signify that the beneficiary has reviewed manuscripts for prestigious journals.
