Any news on EB1c premium processing rule being implemented by USCIS soon? Seems like the law was passed in Sept 2020 to expand premium processing to EB1c but USCIS has still not enacted it. Any word on when/if they will. I am kn L1A and lawyers are currently preparing i140/i485/Adv Parole to be filed in the next 5-6 weeks hopefully.

I'm in the exact same situation and timeline. Would the premium processing be for both forms or just i140? If just i140, what would be the advantages if we would still need to wait for the i485 result?

helpful

It will be only for I-140. Advantage will be that if I-140 is approved, once can switch employers if I485 has been pending for more that 180 days using AC-21 law
