    USCIS starts requiring employers to file I-129 petitions (nonimmigrant worker) in the office having jurisdiction over the state where the primary office of the company is located, rather than where the applicant is working or being trained. Petitioners located in FL, GA, NC, and TX are now required to file at the California Service Center. Beginning Nov. 1, 2017, USCIS will reject applications submitted to the wrong service center.
