h1b petitions acknowledged in july 2016 by california center

Hi… my petition was acknowledged by uscis california center on 21st july 2016. Till date it has not completed. The current processing date for california center is showing as 2 july 2016. My visa had expired on 1st october 2016 and hence the240 day period is also nearing so am really worried. Can you tell me how soon wil they be completing the petition.

Your Employer MUST open a service request or upgrade to premium processing under Expedited Criteria, I have read a blog about this, I will send you a Private message.

I’m also waiting for the status update from California Center as mine filed on 19th July 2017, please share the blog that you shared with other person.

Thanks in advance
