I-140 submitted March 27,2007.

Received 140RFE for ability to pay.
Response submitted on October 26, 2007 to TSC.
So far, no further updates received.

I requested lawyer to submit an inquiry to USCIS on first week of January 2008.
According to lawyer, since TSC processing date for I-140 is June 21,2007 they will not accept any inquiry for my case. My case is still within the processing dates and they can not make a service request until it is outside the processing dates.

Any ideas?
