    Hi everyone...

    I'm a 24 year old who's trying to adjust his status into that of a legal resident in the US. I was brought here on a tourist visa back in 1993 when I was just 9 years old and we overstayed our visas. I grew up here and think of myself as an American in every way that counts. My family was grandfathered by 245(i) and last year I found a company to sponsor my application for adjustment. Thus far, I have received my labor certificate through the perm process and I submitted I-140, I-485, I-765 work authorization, and I-130 advance parole applications. I was called in to do my biometrics a few weeks ago, and have been told to expect my employment authorization card (EAD) within 2 to 4 weeks. Well 2 weeks ago I was notified that an RFE in the EAD application was issued and they have asked me to prove registration in NSEERS since I'm of Jordanian citizenship. The thing is that I have NEVER heard of NSEERS until that moment and the whole thing is freaking me out. My attorney doesn't know what to do as he's never come across such a case and I need help desperately. In my research I found that the NSEERS registration should have been done in 2003 when I was 19 years old and still a student. Does anybody know what the best response would be for the RFE? And is it probable that my whole application will be denied as a result of failing to comply with that registration request back then even though I didn't know about it? I'm very worried that this will be the end of my presence in the US since I haven't been working for 2 years after graduating with my MS. Thank you.

    Get a new lawyer........... Any lawyer who did not know this is not worthy of representing you........It is common knowledge..........He ought to have asked you about that once he knew you country of citizenship. You can still do it and succeed. Just use a new lawyer to guide. Don't go do it without a lawyer.
