Grace Period Extended for Prior Versions of Form G-28
USCIS has extended the grace period for using prior versions of Form G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative to Friday, May 15. USCIS issued the new, revised version of Form G-28 on March 6, 2015 (edition date: 03/04/2015). As we transition to the new form, USCIS is allowing applicants to continue using previous versions of Form G-28. You can find the edition date at the bottom of any page of the Form G-28. We encourage you to start using the new version of the form as soon as possible to benefit from the new options that were added.
Beginning Monday, May 18, USCIS will accept only the new version (edition date: 03/04/2015) of Form G-28. If an application or benefit request is submitted 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.
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.
