Sudden Release of New Immigration Forms on 12/23/2016

USCIS simultaneously released new editions of many immigration forms on 12/23/2016 with instructions stating that prior editions of the forms will not be accepted.  These new forms caught many users by surprise as there was no advanced notice from USCIS.  However, USCIS has advised AILA that the agency will be flexible in handling these applications and will not automatically reject all outdated forms.  Some of the forms affected include:
I-90, I-102, I-129, I-129CW, I-129F, I-130, I-131, I-131A, I-140, I-191, I-192, I-212, I-290B, I-360, I-485, I-485 Supplement A, I-525, I-539, I-600, I-600A, I-601, I-601A, I-612, I-690, I-694, I-698, I-751, I-765, I-800, I-800A, I-817, I-824, I-910, I-924, I-924A, I-929, I-942, I-942P, N-300, N-336, N-400, N-470, N-600, and N-600K.
Readers should be aware that the new filing fee schedule is also effective as of 12/23/2016.
