Default I140 filed with a copy of labour certification

Hi
My employer has filed my i140 with a copy of LC. After a year,The USCIS asked for original and we sent it . Its been a year since and my i140 has not been approved yet. Why is it taking so long?

Premium processing cannot be used in certain cases:

Reproducing from the USCIS Web site:

Premium Processing Service is available for the Form I-140 classifications indicated on the chart above provided that the case does not involve:

A second filing of a Form I-140 petition while an initial Form I-140 remains pending;
Labor certification substitution requests;
Duplicate Labor Certification requests (i.e., cases filed without an original labor certification from the Department of Labor), and;
A Form I-140 petition in which a final decision has been made.

I-140 with copy of labor typically take a long time. The USCIS has to request the original labor certificate from DOL.

Expect to wait anywhere from 1 to 2 years. [Personal experience]
