USCIS Revises Form G-28

From USCIS: USCIS has published a revised Form G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative. The revised form G-28 is part of a final rule that became effective on Jan. 27, 2015.

About Form G-28

Attorneys and legal representatives accredited by the Board of Immigration Appeals use Form G-28 to notify USCIS of their legal representation in a given case. Form G-28 must be signed by the legal representative and by the applicant/petitioner/requestor.

When a valid Form G-28 is on file, USCIS communicates with the legal representative.

New Form G-28 Changes

The revised Form G-28, with the 03/04/2015 edition date, includes two new boxes that allow the applicant/petitioner/requestor to tell USCIS whether they want to receive their notices and secure documents directly, or whether they want USCIS to send them to their legal representative.

The revised Form G-28 also collects more biographic data, email addresses and cell phone numbers.

Beginning April 13, 2015, USCIS will not accept earlier versions of Form G-28. If an applicant, petitioner, or requestor submits an application or benefit request with a previous version of Form G-28, we will accept only the application or request as long as it meets the acceptance criteria.

In this situation, we will not accept the Form G-28 and will send all notices and secure documents only to the applicant/petitioner/requestor.
