DHS Publishes Final Rule on Notices of Decisions and Documents Evidencing Lawful Status

Department of Homeland Security recently published a final rule amending its regulations governing when USCIS will
  • correspond with,
  • issue a notice of decision to, or
  • provide documents to
an applicant, petitioner, or requester, and/or an attorney of record or accredited representative.

This final rule explains how USCIS will provide notices to applicants, petitioners or requestors. It also explains how they can consent to have such notices and secure identification documents sent directly to their designated representatives.

USCIS is in the process of updating Form G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative, and Form G-28I, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney in Matters Outside the Geographical Confines of the United States, to reflect the changes in this rule.

You can view the revised forms at in Docket ID USCIS-2008-0037.

This rule will take effect 90 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register.
