On March 6, 2017, USCIS updated its website to provide instructions on the new Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, and I-130A, Supplemental Information for Spouse and Beneficiary. Starting April 28, 2017, USCIS will only accept the 2/27/17 edition of Form I-130 petitions. AILA members who choose to continue filing using the 12/23/16 edition of Form I-130 until the April 27, 2017, deadline should continue to include two copies of Form G-325A (one for the beneficiary and one for the petitioner) in the filing.
