Judicial Branch

This page will cover important federal and state judicial activities.

  • The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California has issued a nationwide preliminary injunction that prevents U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) from implementing¬†fee increases and new forms, which were originally planned to go into effect on October 2, 2020. USCIS has acknowledged the injunction at the top of its webpage for the¬†Form I-129. For now, petitioners are directed to continue using the current version of the Form I-129 (the latest is dated 01/27/20 at the bottom of each page) when filing for O and P guest artists, and to continue filing with the $460 filing fee.
