The purpose of Form I-907 is to request USCIS premium processing for certain applications, such as I-765, I-129, I-140, and I-539. However, not all categories under I-765 & I-539 forms are eligible for premium processing.
Please refer to the following list of forms to determine which categories qualify for premium processing. You can find the details here.
Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker,
Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers,
Certain categories (c(3)A, c(3)B, and c(3)C) of Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, and
Certain categories of Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status.
If you are ineligible for USCIS premium processing, you may want to explore USCIS's expedited request option, which is based on humanitarian circumstances. Refer to the link provided.
