I have a question on my H1B situation; I work for company A

I have a question on my H1B situation; I work for company A with whom I have an approved H1B petition expiring on May 15' 2017. However my I-94 expired on Mar 18' 2017 (due to Passport expiry)Once I got my passport renewed, my employer (A) applied for H1 extension on Mar 08 (timely filed); However the issue is as follows1. For about 16 days since filing we were not getting the H1 Receipt notice & the checks were not encashed as well2. Today the Attorney office got a mail from USCIS saying that the fee amount is wrong & asking them to send the right fee; Mail has been dated Mar 103. They analyzed & concluded that they remitted higher fee amount; They had included the $500 fraud fee (which is not applicable for H1 extensions with same employer)4. I had wanted to convert the petition to Premium for faster processing & lawyer said this is the right chance; So along with the revised H1 fee check, we have also included a separate Premium Processing check & I-907My questions/concerns are as follows1. Will my PP conversion check be accepted & the case be converted to PP ?2. Any issue with my status here ? (Lawyer office maintains that since the original petition reached USCIS well in time, we are fine with the status)
