Processing time for prevailing wage for H1B transfer

Hi, My lawyer told me that the prevailing wage for H1b transfer (before LCA is filed) would take upto a week to receive, after which the LCA can be filed. I looked up the processing time chart on the DOL website and it says 60 days. How long does it take on an average? Is the week-long timeframe not realistic?

You are looking at the wrong chart. There is a differnece between a prevailing wage determination and a labor condition application. The latter should take a week.
