I140: Higher chance of RFE in premium case than normal processing

Hi Anil,

My I-140 was filed in Dec 2019 under regular processing in Texas service center. I requested employer to upgrade it into premium processing under my expense. The lawyer is saying that there is a higher chance of RFE in premium case than normal processing, and is not willing to upgrade. Is this true? I appreciate if you have any info. Thank you.

Hi @Christine

This is a rumor that upgrading to premium has higher chance of RFE. There is no data to support this claim.

As per my information, premium is always better as you get to approval or RFE or denial faster. The result will be same even if you file in regular processing time.

So, it is always better to know the result faster so that you can take next action.
