Does this indicate that all dates will be 'C' in July?

Default Whats up with USCIS?

USCIS just seems to be changing rules according to their whims and fancies. They are changing rules according to their convenience. What do these idiots think of themselves? One cannot plan on anything when we are dealing with USCIS. What's good today may not be good tomorrow. Do they expect us to be stuck in the backlogs and wait for years together for them to take their own sweet time to process applications? May be a case of job security for these lazy staff.

at least they are approving 2003/2002 PD applications as we have seen.....now that surelymeans they are working a little bit....
Whether they are short on staff, or whatever teh reason maybe, the bottom line is our complains to any higher ups/Senators..etc will just fall on dead ears as we are not the Voter Base.....

This is what the last part of the text says:
This suspension will last for 30 days beginning on July 2, 2007 and ending on August 1, 2007. During this timeframe, USCIS will determine whether it is able to process these cases within 15 calendar days of receipt. If so, Premium Processing Service will once again be made available for Form I-140 petitions.

With this rule in effect from july 2nd, what happens to the cases filed before in PP but it is in pending status with an RFE.

I had received RFE on my I-140 on June 1st and replied back on June 6th but there is no update since then from USCIS.

Post How abt premium processing for 485s?

It would be great to have premium processing for 485s instead now that visa nos are available. Now now ... i know thats wishful thinking but think about it-could save a lot of time and money over EAD/AP/FP renewals. But then again hurts their income stream thats why they wont do it (

why would it hurt their income stream...when theyll charge u rpremium fees for fast 485 processing..it will be cash in teh bag in the first go rather than waiting over the years for EAD/AP renewals.

When I saw the huge movement in June followed by the July bulletin, I'd thought to myself - it's a question of time before they suspend/terminate the 140 PP. The PP demand would come not from people who are filing 140/485 together (because that would be only people who just got the LCs) but rather people who had already applied 140 but not 485, or those who 140 is pending but 485 got current.

This change could at least benefit those who have a "normal" 140 in the pipeline, but that's doubtful because I'm sure these resources would get sucked into the tsunami of 485s in July.

The fact that it says they'll reconsider this after Aug 1 suggests that they do not anticipate too may 485 filings in Aug => chances of retrogression in Aug bulletin is now higher, if it does not retrogress mid-month!

Does it mean they would stop processing I140 premium applications which have already been sent. My I140 was pending for 6 months and I changed it for premium after the dates became current, it was sent by my lawyer this Monday (25th) and received by USCIS on 26th. Does this mean it will not be processed or does this mean they will not accept any premium processing applications from July 2nd.
