NEW I-129 Form Now Available! - (12-18-14)

USCIS launched a new version of the I-129 Form at the end of October, 2014. The changes are fairly minor, but petitioners will notice a new layout and slight re-organization. The Part 9 Explanation page is formatted differently as well, and it should be noted that the O & P Supplement is now three pages, instead of two. Please see our updated guidance for completing the new I-129 as well as our updated sample petitions. USCIS will accept editions of the I-129 dated 10/07/11, 01/19/11, and 11/23/10 (you’ll find this in the bottom left corner of the form) until April 30, 2015.  After that time, USCIS will only accept the new 10/23/14 edition.

CURRENT – New I-129 form available for immediate use on

Starting on MAY 1, 2015, USCIS will accept only this newest Oct. 23, 2014, edition of Form I-129. USCIS will not accept previous editions of Forms I-129. To be on the safe side, plan to use the new version of the form well in advance of this date.
