USCIS to Reject I-129 Petitions Lacking Applicant or Petitioner Primary U.S. office address

USCIS will start rejecting Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker, where the name and primary U.S. office address of the petitioner or applicant are missing (in addition to other form requirements, such as incorrect fee, missing signature, and/or unauthorized third-party signature on behalf of the petitioner).  

For example, the instructions in Part 1 of Form I-129, which are relevant to the amended criteria, are reflected as follows: 

Petitioner Information 

Complete the “Legal Name of Petitioner” field (if the petitioner is an individual person or a company or organization). For mailing address, list the address of the petitioner’s primary office within the United States.  

Specifically, the primary U.S. office address of the petitioner or applicant usually determines where Form I-129 should be filed and should not reflect addresses of outside counsel or clients.  Although rejected petitions can generally be refiled with the submission of required information, providing addresses other than those of the petitioner or applicant (in Part 1 of Form I-129) may create processing delays or result in case rejection, especially when resubmitting cases subjected to cap/numerical limitations.
