How soon does it take to file a L-1 visa petition now without premium processing?

Houston, TX |

I don't know but will they delay the progress basically because i didn't spend $1000 more for the 15 days guarantee? I found from USCIS website said they could do it within one month, but i doubt...

The processing times from USCIS should provide you with general guidelines of how long it will take. This is in addition to the consular processing of your case if applicable.
