I have a general question about filing an EB1(b) I-140. Is it true that there is a higher level of scrutiny, and more chances of RFE, if you use premium processing?


Not all I-140s can be premium processed. But, we do see sort of general, boilerplate RFEs in some PP cases. It is not so much a matter of higher scrutiny – it is just that the USCIS has time limits to hit, or else they have to refund the $1,225 fee. RFEs stop the clock. That being said, we use PP regularly for I-140s, H1Bs, etc. (29.Sep.2014)
