I recently applied for H4 visa for my wife, thru dropbox at Chennai. I received a huge RFE with almost 15 items(w2forms & notarized tax returns for the entire years I worked in US, photographs of both client premises and my sponsor company, and apartment, our phone statements, and a lot more confidential info. about my company.
I struggled for a month to collect all the documents and my wife got the visa issued at last.
it took 3 months altogether.

1. where do you work?
2. what does the company do?
3. how long you have been working?
4. employer letter
5. pay stub

Delay in H1B approval
My company applied for H1B transfer and even after 5 and half months there was no response from INS. I was after my attorney requesting him to call INS and find out about my case. Normally after 120 days of applying for H1, INS Customer Care Representative can be called to enquire about the case. It is the prime responsibility of the attorney to call INS after 120 days if there is no response from INS. Fortunately my attorney called INS upon my repeated requests after 5 ½ months and after 3 days my H1 was approved! Don’t just depend on your desi attorneys...know your rights and ask them.
