I have applied in 2018 for COS from consular processing.. there was an RFE which is common these days I guess... the process should be straight forward for the legal team although I don’t know the inner details... I paid for premium processing and the approval came back within two weeks with three year validity...

Ok, got it

I did. Got an RFP today. It was premium processing.

@C1 did you get any updates on your application? Has your lawyer responded to the RFE? I’m in the same boat and just got an RFE yesterday. Thanks in advance!
