Applied for H1B transfer and got receipt beginning of this month. Checked online and saw that I got RFE on 3/6, but don't know the specific reason yet since it's coming in the mail.
Now that premium processing has been resumed, can I ask the law firm to request for PP now before we officially receive the actual RFE in the mail? Or have to wait until RFE and submit request for PP together with RFE Response?
The thing I'm concerned about is PP going away again before lawyer gets to submit RFE response (if submitting RFE and PP together is the only option)...
Also, I heard that with PP you get RFE via email, vs without PP you get RFE via mail. Thus if I can upgrade to PP asap then maybe I'll be able to get the RFE via email before the mail arrives?
- New vstYour attorney would know better, but in either case it's better to upgrade. At least you have the 15 days guarantee for a response.
Mind asking your profile? I'm concerned that someone from Google got a RFE
- Amazon Fl!pIt wouldn’t make sense for your lawyers to file for Premium Processing before they file the response to the RFE. There is literally nothing that the USCIS can do prior to you responding to RFE, as there is nothing for them to process. In that regard, you have spent the money without enjoying the benefit.
That said, it appears you are more concerned about the possibility of premium processing going away. Is there any reason you believe this might be suspended again soon, or at least prior to your lawyers sending in your RFE response?
