What does this mean: the 15-day Premium Processing clock stopped on your I-129, PETITION FOR A NONIMMIGRANT WORK.

Asked almost 2 years ago - North Chicago, IL

Hi, we filed the L1 B individual case on 16th Jan 2013 under Premium Processing. On 29th Jan the status got updated to Initial Review and it was updated as: “On January 29, the 15-day Premium Processing clock stopped on your I-129, 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. Your premium processing receipt notice contains contact information for direct inquiries on your case.”

Please suggest.

    Answered . This is the way that USCIS gets around having to adjudicate your petition within 15 days of receipt so they don't have to refund your processing fee.
