Beginning August 5, 2019, the USCIS will reject Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, petitions that do not include the petitioner’s or applicant’s name and primary U.S. office address in Part 1 of Form I-129. DHS Regulations require that all forms are submitted according to the form’s instructions and the USCIS currently rejects forms for several reasons including lack of signature, incorrect fees, or unauthorized third party signing on behalf of the petitioner. The petitioner’s primary U.S. office address determines jurisdiction for filing.
