I am in a situation where my OPT stem extension application is in pending. So i am expecting RFE. I work through a consulting company. I work for an Automotive OEM which is directly related to my field, My consultant is preparing the i 983 form with the help of their attorney and with the job description they have. My question is if they prepare and sign i 983 form ( assuming that they prepare it correctly as per my field) will that be still an issue as they are consulting company?

It must be a direct employer and a consulting company can not sign form I-983, read this Article for more information.

my consulting company is direct employer to me, i get paystubs and w2. if they show that they have resources for training and supervision, will that work?
