Regards the case status on H1B for 2014 cap.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Baltimore, MD

My employer filed my H1B under the regular cap and using the Premium Processing. On the 15th of April 2013, I checked for the status and it was under the "ACCEPTANCE" stage. I again checked on the 16th of April, and this time the status was under "REQUEST FOR EVIDENCE". However, today ie: 17th of Aprile, Isee that the status on my case is under "INITIAL REVIEW" and there it is written as "On April 17, 2013, the 15-day Premium Processing clock stopped on your I129, PETITION FOR A NONIMMIGRANT WORKER. A notice was sent on this date explaining the specific reason for stopping the premium processing of your case. This notice will contain detailed information on further action required by you. What does this mean and what should I do here. Please suggest here.

    Answered . It means USCIS sent a RFE notice asking additional information on your and 15-day premium processing will restart once the requested information is received. USCIS generally faxes the RFE notice to your attorney on the same day. So, you probably want to speak to your attorney if the notice has been received. If not, wait for one by USPS mail.
