USCIS has published a revised version of Form G-28, the Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative. This revision is part of a final rule that took effect on January 27, 2015. The revised form, dated 03/04/2015, includes two new boxes that allow a petitioner to tell USCIS whether he or she would like to receive notices and secure documents directly or whether he or she wants USCIS to send these notices and documents directly to his/her legal representative. This form also requests more biographic data, email addresses and cell phone numbers.

Beginning April 13, 2015, USCIS will no longer accept earlier versions of Form G-28. Applications submitted on previous versions of the form will only be accepted if it meets all acceptance criteria. Notes and secure documents will be sent only to the petitioner.
