OP the answer really depends on your priorities. On one hand, you can use the next couple of months to come up with an alternate arrangement in the event that your extension is denied (Canada, Australia PR etc). Or if you think that a pending petition is causing you a lot of emotional distress and you’d rather find out the answer now vs later, ask them to expedite it to premium.

Petition because I am in implied status, I will lose work authorization immediately. Any advice here? What should I do? Be in regular processing or move to premium?

Advantage with regular processing is that you'd have those extra months when you can keep working whereas with pp, you'd get a decision right away and might have to move out immediately!

OP- is the premium processing back for H1B extensions??

Yes

Update: got my approval. After due consideration, I told the attorneys to not pursue the premium route and one day later I got the approval. It was filed in November and RFE response was submitted two weeks ago

How do you guys handle the frustration of being stuck in your job due to visa reasons? I am planning my future here but am really starting to wonder if this is all worth it.

I am on L1A, for GC I have to wait another year before they start the process. My bf is American but it’s too early to marry and also not a quick fix 😅
