Release Date

Beginning May 18, USCIS will accept only the new version (edition date: 03/04/2015) of Form G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative. If an applicant, petitioner, or requestor submits an application or benefit request with a previous version of Form G-28, we will not accept the Form G-28 but will accept the application, petition, or request as long as it meets the acceptance criteria. In this situation, we will send all notices and secure documents only to the applicant/petitioner/requestor. 

You can find the edition date at the bottom of any page of the Form G-28.

USCIS issued the new, revised version of Form G-28 on March 6, 2015. As we transitioned to the new form, USCIS allowed applicants to continue using previous versions of Form G-28. This transition period ends on Sunday, May 17. 

About the new Form G-28

The new Form G-28 (edition date: 03/04/2015) includes two new boxes that allow applicants/petitioners/requestors 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 new form also collects more biographic data, email addresses and cell phone numbers.
